4 fires burn 7.5 acres at Vandenberg Air Force Base

Investigators are working to determine the cause of four fires that burned a total of 7.5 acres Friday on Vandenberg Air Force Base property, according to base officials.

The fires, which did not threaten any structures, were put out within 90 minutes.

Earlier in the day, people were being asked to avoid the area northwest of El Rancho Road and Umbra Road.

A Santa Barbara County aircraft and one strike team with five engines battled the flames.
