Crews work to contain 100 acre spot fire near Dolan Fire

BIG SUR, Calif. (KION) Officials with the Los Padres National Forest said a 100 acre spot fire broke out near the Dolan Fire over the weekend.

They said spot fires are caused when embers from the fire float over the fire line, when a smoldering tree falls across the line or when a smoldering log rolls across the line.

The weekend spot fire broke out on the east side, and firefighters from Fort Hunter Liggett and the Pacific Northwest Team 2 incident management team worked to contain it.

They said the line is holding well so far.
