The fire was reported at about 2:25 p.m. along Spyglass Ridge Road, at the end of Tunnel Road, according to Santa Barbara County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni.

(Fire officials originally said the fire was on the 2800 block of Palomino Road.)

At 3:15 p.m., he said, crews had a hose line around the blaze, and expected containment shortly.

An air tanker from the Pine Fire in Ventura County was diverted to make drops on the fire, and the county’s Copter 308 also responded.

The fire was traced to someone using a weed trimmer, Zaniboni said.

No injuries were reported.

Crews from Santa Barbara County and the Santa Barbara, Montecito and U.S. Forest Service fire departments responded to the blaze.
