Sta. Rita Hills Wildfire Out Quick


A wildfire along Cebada Canyon Road amid Sta. Rita Hills wine country near Mission La Purísima and six miles from the City of Lompoc was quickly contained on Tuesday afternoon after burning about 10 acres of brush. The fire, which started around 2:45 p.m., briefly threatened structures, but a number of fire engines, two helicopters, and an air tanker handled the problem by 4:30 p.m.
