SANTA BARBARA, CA – 4/15/2010 – At 5:17pm the Santa Barbara City Fire Department responded 4 engines, 1 truck and a Battalion Chief to a structure fire reported at 316 N. Milpas St. The involved business, The Lunch Box catering company, was unoccupied at the time of the fire. First arriving fire crews used a rotor power saw to force open the door to the business and quickly extinguished the fire. Once the fire was completely extinguished, firefighters began checking for fire extension into the attic and adjacent businesses. Immediate notification to 911 and a quick knockdown of the fire allowed both Milpas Liquor and the House of Laundry to avoid damage. A fire investigator was called to the scene with fire crews remaining on scene to assist with salvage and overhaul of the fire area. The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.
