It was a scary wake-up call for about a dozen people in Santa Barbara, as an early morning apartment fire forced their evacuation from their apartment complex.
It happened at around 5:30 Sunday morning, on the 800 block of Cliff Drive. Santa Barbara firefighters called to the scene found flames, and smoke coming from a second floor apartment. The firefighters were able to quickly knock down the blaze before it spread to neighboring units.
No one was injured. Investigators say the fire accidentally started in the kitchen of the damaged unit.
