Fire Damages Home in Mission Canyon Near Santa Barbara

An electrical fire damaged a single-family home late Thursday night in the Mission Canyon area near Santa Barbara, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The blaze in the 800 block of Windsor Way was reported shortly after 10:30 p.m., said fire Capt. David Sadecki.

Three Santa Barbara County engines and a ladder truck responded, along with a crew from the city of Santa Barbara, Sadecki said.

Firefighters discovered that a faulty light fixture had started the fire in the attic of the home, and had to tear down part of the ceiling to douse the flames and check for spread, Sadecki said, adding that the roof was not damaged.

The resident was home at the time, Sadecki said, and was alerted to the fire by a smoke detector.

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.
