If you notice smoke in the air in #Lompoc on this windy afternoon, it's due to a brush fire at the riverbed.@LompocCityFire crews are holding the fire to 2 acres or less, as explained here by Battalion Chief Scott Nunez. pic.twitter.com/kUNzym5JMM— City of Lompoc (@CityofLompoc) May 10, 2022
Arriving units found a small brush fire with a moderate rate of spread and moderate wind on it, so crews initiated a full brush response, Nunez said.
The fire was held to about 1.5-2 acres, he added.
Santa Barbara County Fire and the Vandenberg Fire Department also responded to the scene.
