The Santa Barbara County Fire Department says the cause of a brush fire last week along Tepusquet Canyon Road was attributed to a tractor working in the area.
Fire officials say an investigation found the tractor did not have a required spark arrester.
The official cause of the fire was found to be hot exhaust from the tractor igniting the dry grass. The tractor was a rental. It was being used for work in a vineyard.
The fire burned about 20 acres.
