A vegetation fire in the Hollister Hills State Vehicle Recreation Area was at about 50 acres and 90 percent containment shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday, according to a Calfire spokesman.
The fire was reported at 2:10 p.m. between Hidden Valley and Grass Valley roads in the Cienega Valley, said Calfire spokesman Jonathan Pangburn.
There are no reported injuries in the fire, with about 40 firefighting crews on scene at some point during the incident. That fight has included use of air tankers stationed at the Hollister Municipal Airport.
“Yes, thee was aircraft involved for a little while. Not anymore because it’s almost 100 percent contained,” Pangburn said.
Pangburn described the location of the fire.
“I believe it has entered into a portion of the park, although it appears it may have started just outside,” Pangburn told San Benito Live.
It was too early to determine a possible cause.
“We do have an investigator in route to help determine the cause,” he said.
Calfire brought five engines, one hand crew, a bulldozer and a couple of overhead chief officers, Pangburn said.
The Hollister Fire Department responded to the incident as well. It is being called the Hidden Fire by Calfire.
