Santa Barbara County Fire and CAL FIRE investigators have concluded the Miguelito Fire happened because of untrimmed trees that came in contact with a live power line.
Investigators say on May 13th a 12,000 volt power line feeding the power plant at 2500 San Miguelito Rd. in Lompoc, contacted a tree causing embers to drop down and ignite the dry brush along the hillside.
The fire is 95% contained. Full containment is expected by 6:00 p.m. on Friday.
