Brush Fire Briefly Closes Part Of Highway 101 on Central Coast


Santa Barbara County firefighters are mopping up a 15 acre brush fire which at one point closed northbound Highway 101 on the Central Coast.

The fire was reported just before one p.m. near the intersection of Highways 101 and 154, north of Buellton.  The fire put up a huger plume of smoke, but no homes were threatened.

The fire led to the shutdown of northbound traffic, but vehicles were allowed though again by about 3:15.
