Barbecue fire causes minor damage to SLO home


Firefighters extinguished a blaze before it could cause significant damage to a San Luis Obispo home on Sunday.

At about 12:40 p.m., a barbecue smoker was left unattended and sitting too close to combustible materials and vegetation, according to the San Luis Obispo Fire Department. A spark then caused a fire at the home located on San Carlos Drive.

Neighbors rapidly reported the blaze, enabling firefighters to arrive in time to prevent major damage.
