Plans to merge Lompoc's fire services with Santa Barbara County's hit a dead end Tuesday night.
The city council voted four to zero to halt the merger.
The council says the estimated price tag was just too high at almost $6 million.
That is almost twice what the city currently pays for its fire services each year.
The city's public safety commission directed staff to review the city's options.
A recent report says the city's fire department is understaffed and underfunded.
