It is in the Salinas Riverbed behind KFC on Broadway in King City. It started in a homeless camp. It is currently 100 acres and 15% contained. It started just after 2 pm this afternoon. It is headed in a southerly direction, but remaining inside the Salinas River bed. This is a King City responsibility area, not Cal Fire. There have been evacuations, but most are voluntary. Broadway has been closed on and off most of the afternoon.

Was this started by an Arson?
It was started in a homeless camp, so I suspect a cooking fire, as too warm for a warming fire.
