County Firefighters Battle Structure Fire Near Buellton

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.

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.
