No one was injured Friday afternoon when a fire broke out in a cottage at the Valley Club in Montecito.

Firefighters were dispatched shortly before 2 p.m. to the exclusive country club at 1901 East Valley Road, according to Jackie Jenkins, public information officer for the Montecito Fire Protection District.

A housekeeper in the cottage, who was alerted to the flames by a smoke detector, reported the blaze and escaped without injury, Jenkins said.

The fire, which remained under investigation, broke out in the basement of the single-family dwelling, she said.

The blaze was declared under control at 2:20 p.m., she added.

No injuries were reported.

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!
