The Santa Barbara County Fire Department responded to a trailer fire that threatened two Orcutt homes early Monday morning.

At 3:38 a.m., fire crews responded to Amethyst Drive and discovered a travel trailer fully involved in fire in between two single-family residential homes. 

Firefighters bean an aggressive attack by securing a water supply and pulling a line around the trailer while additional engines completed exposure control on the two residences on either side of the trailer.

All occupants had evacuated and crews searched for any extension into the structures and attics. There was no fire extension and only minor smoke damage in one home.

There were no injuries and four people were displaced.

The cause is under investigation.

Trailer Fire Threatens Orcutt Homes

Maybe it's time the County starts enforcing the RV parking ordinances. If you can't put it behind a screened fence out of all easements and out of public view, you need to store these things at private storage lots. Our neighborhood is slowly filling up with RVs and trailers in front yards, in driveways, and occasionally on the street. Good luck when fires do happen and the fire trucks can't access your house.
