Fire crews respond to brush fire on Gibraltar Road above Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - Multiple fire agencies responded to a reported brush fire in the 3000 block of Gibraltar Road above Santa Barbara Tuesday night.

The fire was reported shortly before 9:30 p.m., immediately following the Fourth of July fireworks show at Santa Barbara's waterfront. The Rock Fire burned less than an acre with a slow rate of spread.

Crews quickly put out the fire and cut brush to make sure flare-ups don't spread or restart the fire. They will be on scene through the night to ensure hot spots are put out.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

We will update this story when new information becomes available.
