A recreational vehicle was destroyed by fire in Los Olivos early Monday, but firefighters were able to keep the flames from spreading to an adjacent residence.

Crews were called out at 4:20 a.m. to the 2600 block of Santa Ynez Street, where they found the RV engulfed in flames, according to Capt. Dave Zaniboni of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

No one was inside the RV at the time, Zaniboni said, adding that the residents of the home were out of town at the time.

The RV was parked about 10 feet from the home, but firefighters were able to protect the structure from damage.

No injuries were reported.

Cause of the blaze was under investigation, Zaniboni said.

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!
