One person was injured in a structure fire Thursday afternoon near Lompoc.

At approximately 1:15 p.m., personnel from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department and Lompoc Fire Department were dispatched to the 2300 block of Sweeney Road, county fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said.

Firefighters arrived to find a 24-foot motor home and shed fully engulfed in fire. 

Both the motor home and shed were destroyed by the fire, but firefighters kept the flames from spreading to the nearby residence.

An elderly woman with minor burns was transported to the Lompoc Valley Medical Center for treatment, he added. 

The cause of the fire is 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.

Thanks for asking!
