Santa Barbara County firefighters battled a 20 acre brush fire neat UC Santa Barbara late Thursday night, and Friday morning.
The fire was spotted just before 10 p.m. in the Coal Oil Point area. County firefighters say the blaze was spread by gusty wind in the area.
There are no structures in the area, and the fire was burning towards the ocean. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but a report of a suspicious person in the area around the time the blaze started is being investigated.
