SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department says a controlled burn in the Los Alamos area jumped containment lines Tuesday, burning more brush than previously planned.

The fire department was conducting a three-day 557 acre burn at BarM Ranch, just south of Los Alamos.

The fire ended up jumping containment lines and charring an additional 10 to 20 acres, according to the fire department.

The fire department says firefighters have a good handle on the fire, and it doesn't pose any threat.
