Firefighters responded Sunday afternoon to a structure fire in the Mission Canyon area of Santa Barbara.

Crews were dispatched shortly before 4 p.m. to the 1800 block of Las Canoas Road, according to the Santa Barbara City Fire Department.

They found a detached garage engulfed in flames on the interior, said fire Battalion Chief Jim McCoy.

The blaze appeared to have started in a living area at the rear of the structure, McCoy said, and investigators were on scene looking for the point of origin and cause.

No one was in the structure at the time of the fire, he said.

Crews were able to quickly knock down the flames, McCoy said, adding that there was also a small area of vegetation charred outside the structure.

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!
