A vegetation fire charred several bushes Wednesday afternoon along Highway 101 near the El Sueno Road onramp in Goleta, authorities said.
The fire was reported at 5:20 p.m.. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department launched a full vegetation response and arriving units found the vegetation burning between Calle Real and the highway, said Capt. Daniel Bertucelli, fire spokesman.
The fire was isolated to the bushes and no injuries were reported. Traffic in both directions of the 101 was slowed for a time and the No. 3 northbound lane was temporarily closed to allow firefighters room to access the fire.
Westbound traffic along Calle Real at El Sueno Road was also temporary closed. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
