Update by edhat staff

Santa Barbara County Firefighters extinguished an attic fire in a Goleta home before it spread Thursday morning.

Crews initiated a first alarm response at 10:11 a.m. to the 1400 block of Camino Meleno for a structure fire. First arriving crews reported smoke from the left side of the structure and the response was upgraded to a second alarm due to an active fire.

Firefighters discovered the fire in the attic and initiated an aggressive attack preventing the fire from spreading to the rest of the house.

There were no reported injuries and no additional damage. The cause is under investigation.

I sure hope those cans of paint with dried paint all over the sides were stored properly. Possibly keep stuff like that in a locker in a shed away from your house if you can't use it or recycle it right away.

Curious if it was an electic fire caused by a rodent/squirrel gnawing on wires. That happened at a grade school friend's house long ago.

This is in the foothills off Patterson. Appears to be an attic fire, according to JP. No injuries.
