House burns in Isla Vista
ISLA VISTA — A fire engulfed a small two-story house early Tuesday morning in the 6600 block of Abrego Street.
The Santa Barbara County Fire Department responded to the Isla Vista structure fire at 3:10 a.m., and a one-alarm fire quickly was re-designated as a two-alarm blaze.
There were seven engines from County Fire and one from the Santa Barbara City Fire Department, Capt. Daniel Bertucelli, County Fire spokesman, told the News-Press.
He said the fire was extinguished around 4:15 a.m. and that no one was inside the structure. “The building was a total loss.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Capt. Bertucelli said.
