Isla Vista Residential Fire
updated: Jan 10, 2013, 4:15 PM

Source: Santa Barbara Fire Department

At 1:21 pm, Santa Barbara County Fire Department (SBC FD) responded to a residential structure fire, 6690 Abrego Rd. in Goleta.

SBC FD responded three engines, a ladder truck, breathing support unit, an investigator and a battalion chief to the scene. A second alarm was initiated but was cancelled upon knockdown of the fire. SBC FD was assisted by UCSB Police, SB Sheriff's Dept., AMR and the Gas Company.

First arriving firefighters found fire showing from the third floor of a three story, multi- unit apartment complex. Firefighters gained access to the apartment, extinguished the fire and searched for victims. The unit was unoccupied at the time of the fire. The fire was confined to the living room of the two bedroom apartment. The remaining portion of the apartment sustained moderate heat and smoke damage throughout. The fire was knocked down at 1:35 pm and confined to the room of origin. The building's alarm system malfunctioned. However, the smoke detectors in the apartment were in working order. The adjoining apartments were evacuated. There were no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
