Hazardous Response to Goleta Chemical Fire
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.
