Santa Barbara County firefighters responded Tuesday night to a greenhouse fire in the Patterson Mesa area near Goleta.
Crews were dispatched at about 7:15 p.m. to Por la Mar Nursery at 905 S. Patterson Avenue, according to fire Capt. Daniel Bertucelli.
Upon arrival, they found a hoop greenhouse covered in plastic engulfed in flames, Bertucelli said.
The burning plastic was putting up thick, black, acrid smoke that was visible throughout the Goleta Valley, he added.
Firefighters quickly knocked down the flames and remained on scene doing mop-up.
No injuries were reported, and an investigator was dispatched to the scene to search for the cause of the blaze.
