Fire Started By Illegal Barbecue Threatened Storage Buildings

And a fire started by an illegal barbecue Monday night threatened to set ablaze storage buildings on the 2200 block of Cienaga Street in Oceano. Fire officials arrived on scene just after 7. Firefighters arrived to find a blaze at the base of very large tree adjacent to multiple single-story storage buildings. Ground crews doused overhanging branches with water and used hand tools to rake the ground and disperse burning embers at the tree’s base. There was no evident damage to the storage building or its contents.
