A half-acre fire that broke out in a heavily wooded area just north of Pebble Beach’s famed 17 Mile Drive this afternoon was contained at 2:10 p.m., Fire Capt. David Jones said.
The effort to contain the fire involved at least eight engines, two hand crews, two air tankers and a helicopter. The fire was officially contained at 2:10 p.m.
No injuries have been reported and an investigation is under way into the cause of the fire.
Cause of the fire? Air, heat, fuel. Duh.
