The fire started Thursday afternoon on the outskirts of Atascadero, about 15 miles of San Luis Obispo, and burned southeast toward the community of Santa Margarita. As of 7 p.m. Friday 10,500 acres had burned, but firemen hoped for containment Saturday.

No homes were lost, but some outbuildings were burned on the estate of the late L. Ron Hubbard, the writer and Scientology founder, near the community of Creston.
