A wind-driven fire burning near Gaviota in Santa Barbara County prompted the closure of the coastal El Capitan campground Thursday afternoon.

The Real Fire was reported around 4:30 p.m. and appeared to be burning toward the ocean.

Approximately 75 to 100 acres burned and zero containment just before 6 p.m., according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

California Highway Patrol is shutting down Highway 101 intermittently.
