BIG SUR, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire that has burned more than a dozen homes in the Big Sur area of central California is now 20 percent contained.

Los Padres National Forest spokeswoman Lynn Olson says the blaze that began early Monday has destroyed 22 buildings. About 14 of those structures were homes, including that of Big Sur Fire Chief Martha Karstens.

No injuries have been reported.

The fire has burned about 769 acres, or a little over a square mile. The cause is still under investigation.

Big Sur is a popular tourist destination along the Central California coast with high-end resorts and beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean.
