Montecito, CA – Sprinkler system contains garage fire; No injuries reported

Fire crews were called to the scene of a garage fire on Monday afternoon in Montecito.

Crews arrived in the 200 block of Olive Mill Road and found light smoke coming from the garage, according to the Montecito Fire Department (MFD).

Fortunately, a sprinkler system within the garage effectively contained the flames, resulting in minimal damage confined to the garage and no reported injuries.

To ensure the safety of residents and motorists, the section of Olive Mill Road between Hot Springs Road and the Olive Mill roundabout at Coast Village Road was temporarily closed while firefighters continued their operations at the scene.

The closure allowed the crews to conduct mop-up activities and investigate the possible cause of the fire.
