Fire crews responded to the blaze at Santa Lucia Canyon Road and Highway 1 shortly before 12:30 p.m. The fire spread quickly and jumped over the highway.

But, firefighters contained the blaze before it threatened any structures. Evacuation orders were briefly in effect.

California Highway Patrol officers and Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies closed roads in the area. Highway 1 and other roads reopened at around 3:36 p.m.

Crews from the Vandenberg Fire Department, Santa Barbara County Fire Department and the federal forest services helped extinguish the blaze. Air support was also used.

    Get ready for a long hot and fiery summer in California.
    What I’m waiting for is who/what the main stream media wants to blame it on?
    Trump? Bush? Obama? IslamoFacists? Pope Francis? Or Gay Marriage?
    But you never let a tragedy go to waste without using it to divide people…that is how modern day America works.

      Rich, IMO, all of the fires will be blamed on global warming. From there, they will blame Republicans for global warming foot dragging, and then they can make the connection to Bush. That’s my prediction.
