County Firefighters Battle Structure Fire Near Buellton

By Gina Potthoff, Noozhawk Staff Writer | @ginapotthoff |

Fire crews were responding Wednesday afternoon to a structure fire south of Buellton, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Capt. David Sadecki said fire crews were called around 12:15 p.m. to a report of a structure fire at a building located on a ranch in the 7200 block of Santa Rosa Road.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a 200-square-foot building fully involved, and crews quickly prevented the one-alarm fire from spreading to another nearby building, Sadecki said.

He said no vegetation was burned, and firefighters were able to put out the fire around 12:30 p.m.

The adjacent building contained $500,000 in restored automobiles, he noted. 

There were no injuries during the incident and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
