Home Spared as RV Goes Up in Flames Near Goleta

Santa Barbara County firefighters were able to prevent a motorhome fire from spreading to an adjacent home Thursday night near Goleta.

The blaze broke out shortly after 8:30 p.m. at a single-story home on the 5100 block of La Ramada Road, fire Capt. David Sadecki said.

The motorhome was engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived, and was a total loss, Sadecki said.

The vehicle was parked within a foot of the single-story home, but the flames did not spread to the structure. There was, however, some heat damage to the home.

No injuries were reported, and the fire remained under investigation Thursday night, Sadecki said.

Three county engines and a ladder truck responded to the incident.

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!
