The massive Soberanos wildfire here in the mountains south of Monterey Bay was in day 19 on Tuesday and only 50% contained. The fire was caused by someone who lit an illegal campfire near a waterfall off the Soberanes Canyon Trail in Garrapata State Park).   It now covers almost 60,000 acres (93 square miles) over rugged, inaccessible terrain.
