Santa Barbara firefighters say a New Year’s Eve blaze in an apartment led to several residents being displaced due to fire damage.
The fire happened just after 2 p.m. Saturday, on the 500 block of West Canon Perdido Street. A cooking fire in the kitchen of a second story unit quickly spread out of control. Firefighters were able to contain the fire before it spread throughout the building. No one was hurt. The Red Cross was on hand to help people displaced by the fire.
Damage is estimated at around $75,00o.
