Is this true ? Did anyone else hear about it ?
omg thank God!
Thanks for letting me know guys !!
Don't be alarmed, it was contained before firefighters arrived and was only restricted to the barbeque area, so no damage, thankfully.
It seems true:
Barbecue starts fire at former Neverland Ranch
1 hour ago • Staff Report
An improperly maintained outdoor barbecue hood system was the cause of a fire this morning at Sycamore Valley Ranch in Los Olivos, formerly known as Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch.
There were no injuries or damage to any structures, said Capt. David Sadecki, spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.
A meal was being prepared at the time of the blaze, and the barbecue has been shut down for repairs, he added.
About 10:08 a.m., three engines responded to a report of a structure fire at 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road, with assistance from the U.S. Forest Service.
The first unit to arrive reported the blaze was out, so the other two engines were called off, Sadecki said.
During its heyday as Jackson’s iconic home, the 2,800-acre ranch property featured a mansion, a zoo and an amusement park with bumper cars, a merry-go-round and Ferris wheel, and was the site of lavish children’s parties and a live televised interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1993 that drew 90 million viewers.
The property also had its own fire department.
Thank God there is no damage and nobody was hurt.
