Firefighters respond to smoke at Santa Maria senior housing complex

Fire officials say burnt food caused a fire alarm and smoke detectors to go off at the Union Plaza senior housing in Santa Maria Monday, forcing some residents to be removed from their rooms for part of the night.

The Santa Maria Fire Department responded around 10:45 p.m. and found smoke in the third-floor hallway.

Crews worked to remove people and help them shelter in place on the second, third, and fourth floors until firefighters could find the fire or source of the smoke.

Officials say the smoke was caused by burnt food in one of the rooms.

Everyone was able to return to their rooms after the third floor was ventilated.

There was no damage to the building and no one was injured.
