Santa Barbara County firefighters are responding to a slow-growing brush fire on Glen Annie Road in Goleta.

At 2:14 p.m. Thursday, the fire department received a report of a fire in the 1700 block of N. Glen Annie Road.

Crews arrived on the scene and found workers in the area, but are unsure if it's related to the fire.

Incident Command reports the fire is approximately one acre moving uphill at a slow rate of spread. It's burning in the Los Padres National Forest with no structures threatened at this time.

Resources are still en route with Helicopter 964 lifting off from the Santa Ynez Valley. Incident Command does not foresee a need for fixed-wing tankers at this point, reports SBCFD spokesperson Mike Eliason.

This is a developing story.

Isn't this the 3rd or 4th incident involving these orchards North of Cathedral Oaks in as many months?
