Nearly three weeks after the Lizzie Fire scorched High School Hill in San Luis Obispo, smoke was spotted in the area again this week.
As of 2:30 p.m., firefighters were in the process of “extinguishing the hot spots,” the agency said.
The Lizzie Fire sparked on Oct. 30 near the Future Farmers of America farm at San Luis Obispo High School, spreading to High School Hill and ultimately burning 124 acres of land.
Numerous homes were evacuated in the Lizzie Street and Woodland Court neighborhoods while firefighters worked to contain the fire.
After battling the blaze for three days, firefighters fully contained the fire on Nov. 1.
That same day, the San Luis Obispo Police Department arrested a 15-year-old suspected of arson related to the fire.
