Firefighters knock down fire at what used to be known as Neverland Ranch

Firefighters fight small vegetation fire at former Neverland property that used to be owned by Michael Jackson

LOS OLIVOS, Calif. - Santa Barbara County firefighters called off a dozer after they put out a small vegetation fire on property once owned by the late Michael Jackson and known as Neverland Ranch.

Santa Barbara County Fire's Mike Eliason said it burned half an acre on what is now called Sycamore Ranch.

The ranch is located at 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road in Los Olivos.

It started before 6:30 p.m. on Sunday and crews had it under control and canceled additional crews by 7:20 p.m.

The property is infamous, but the community never wanted it to be turned into a tourist attraction like Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis.

That hasn't stopped fans from taking photos at the front gate, but they can not see the home from that location.
