The Alamo Fire burning on July 8th

A brush fire which burned nearly 29,000 acres of land in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties has been fully contained.

The Alamo Fire started July 6th northeast of Santa Maria, near Twitchell Reservoir. The fire closed Highway 166 between Santa Maria, and New Cuyama for days, destroying a home, and damaging a building in the process.

While the fire has been contained, some firefighters will remain in the area for the next few weeks patrolling for potential hot spots. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
