San Francisco (CNN) -- A wildfire near Big Sur, California has forced the evacuation of dozens of homes and businesses and the closure of Highway 1, the scenic highway along the coast, officials said Saturday.
Firefighters were battling the blaze over about 300 acres in the Ventana wilderness area of the Los Padres National Forest, an area famous for its natural beauty.
One trailer was destroyed, but no homes had been lost and there were no injuries reported, forestry officials said. The cause of the fire was not known.
