Firefighters were able to contain a 10-acre blaze burning southeast of Santa Maria Tuesday afternoon.
The fire was reported in the area of Cat Canyon and Palmer roads around 12:10 p.m.
The wind-driven fire was burning light grass and while it was initially surrounded by roads, it jumped a road and got into heavier fuel, Santa Barbara County Fire spokesman Mike Eliason said.
Santa Barbara County, Santa Maria, and Vandenberg Air Force Base fire departments sent resources to the scene in addition to three air tankers and one helicopter, Eliason said.
Never miss a local story.
No injuries or structure damage were reported in the blaze, which was 80 percent contained as of 2:05 p.m., he said.
The cause of the fire was being investigated.
The blaze, named the Lease Fire, was initially reported near the ERG California office in the 6000 block of Cat Canyon Road.
No further details were available.
The fire broke out as firefighter crews battle several large fires in Southern California, including the more than 45,000-acre Thomas Fire in Ventura.
