Santa Barbara County firefighters quickly tackled a spot fire in the More Mesa area early Monday evening.

At 7:49 p.m., fire crews responded to the area near Mockingbird Lane and Calle Las Brisas and found a 200 x 200 foot area burning in light grass at a slow rate of spread. Due to the cool temperatures and light winds, firefighters quickly handled the scene and cancelled all other engines en route.

Two engines are currently on scene mopping up the area. There were no structures threatened and no reported injuries. The cause is under investigation.

Tall dry grass is a fire hazard this time of year. Are there any homeless camps over there? If so the police need to go give the boot!

I never see homeless camps on County or City owned properties. Suppose the homeless know that they won't get hassled on Caltrans or Railroad properties. But they will get evicted quickly on other open space lands. They may be homeless, but they're not stupid...

Go there often and never seen homeless camps, likely too far for pan handling and or food and liquor. Of course, never say never.

Thank you firefighters (and weather gods) for knocking back this fire. The other day I spotted a White-tailed kite hovering in the air over More Mesa. Such a sighting made my week. Glad no animals, human animals or structures suffered.

Sounded like it was pretty much knocked down then I heard flair up near Walnut probably be mopping it up all night.
