Santa Barbara County firefighters responded Tuesday to a large barn fire in the Cuyama Valley.
Crews from the county were called out shortly after 10 a.m, and upon arrival found about half of the 3,000-square-foot barn engulfed in flames, said fire Capt. David Sadecki.
Because of Cuyama’s remote location in northeastern Santa Barbara County, it took a while for some crews to reach the scene.
The flames were knocked down and the fire contained at about 10:50 a.m., Sadecki said, adding that crews would remain on scene for several hours doing mop-up.
The fire was traced to malfunctioning electrical equipment, Sadecki said.
No injuries were reported.
