Update by edhat staff

Santa Barbara County firefighters and Hazmat crews responded to a chemical fire in Goleta on Thursday evening.

At 7:08 p.m., crews arrived at 6325 Lindmar Drive in Goleta, the building of Microdyn-Nadir, for a reported structure fire. The response was quickly updated to include Hazmat teams from the county and Santa Barbara City. 

Crews discovered the fire was initiated by mixing of chemicals, but it was quickly extinguished by fire protection systems on-site and firefighters, said SBC Fire Captain Daniel Bertucelli.

Water flowing out from the building could have been contaminated so firefighters protected storm drains using damming materials.

There were no injuries and the cause is under investigation.

Hazardous Response to Goleta Chemical Fire

if its the place I think it is, its a block from me. If its the water filter membrane place they probably use Base and Acid to neutralize waste ( PH correction ). the Acid boil water when it contact with water. so thats why they are probably stating the reaction from fire fighting efforts.
