Firefighters responded Tuesday afternoon to a vegetation fire that broke out in the hills behind the Glen Annie Golf Club in western Goleta.

Santa Barbara County crews were dispatched at about 5:20 p.m. to the blaze near the course at 405 Glen Annie Road.

The fire charred about half an acre near Northgate Drive, with flames burning in light vegetation, according to firefighter Sky Bonillo.

There were no structures being threatened, Bonillo said.

Shortly before 6 p.m., crews on scene reported that the forward progress of the fire had been halted, and firefighters were dousing hot spots and mopping up.

Crews expected to be on scene for another hour.

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!
