At 1:51pm, Santa Barbara County Fire Department (SBC FD) responded to a commercial structure fire, located at 1251 Orchid Drive in Santa Barbara.

SBC FD responded four engines and three chief officers to the scene. The Sheriff assisted with traffic control. The fire was initially dispatched as a vegetation fire. First arriving firefighters found smoke and fire showing from a 35,000 square foot commercial greenhouse. Firefighters made an interior attack and were able to knock the fire down at 2:38pm. The fire burned approximately 1000 square feet of the building. Firefighters had to contend with live power lines down directly adjacent to the building. Southern California Edison responded and cut power to the area. There were no injuries reported.

The cause of the fire was a downed power line.
