[UPDATE, 7:56 p.m.]: Emergency crews quickly contained the fire to the single building at 2337 Golden Gate Avenue, said a spokesperson for the Montecito Fire District. He clarified that the structure appears to be a duplex, rather than a multi-unit apartment complex.

Engine units remain on the scene in mop-up mode, and there is no danger to the surrounding area, the spokesperson said.
