Multiple SB County and SLO Fire units are responding to a brush fire in Bull Canyon off Highway 166.
This is about 2 miles east of Santa Maria.
I don't have SLOs freqs.
On scene now is SB- 2engines and WT and about 6 each engines from SLO and another 6 from Los Padres on scene.
Tagdes, thanks for info. Can you tell if it’s north or south of 166?
Looking at ADS one is definitely circling around now north of 166, but there had been some south traffic earlier.
Just watched Cal Fire dozer and brush truck heading that way on the CT cam.
2 copters dipping from Jim May Park out of SM.
Here's the twitter handle for the fire. They are calling it the Canyon Fire
A poster in the twitter thread says it's at 16 ac and forward progression is "considerably slowed"
Sounds like full CHP closure at Bull Canyon and fire is moving easterly on the south side of 166.
@Barkflight on the twitter thread is reporting that forward progress is stopped.
