Firefighters responded to barn fire near Lompoc on Wednesday afternoon, according to Capt. Dave Zaniboni from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

At approximately 5 p.m., personnel from the county Fire Department  and Lompoc Fire Department responded to the incident in the 2500 block of Miguelito Canyon Road.

The 1,500-square-foot structure was fully engulfed in flames, Zaniboni added.

The blaze involving the structure did not spread to nearby vegetation, he said.

Many areas of northern Santa Barbara County received light rain earlier Wednesday, likely helping avoid brush from catching fire.

No one was injured in the incident. 

Crews were released from the scene by 7 p.m., according to emergency dispatch reports.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
