The Drum Fire is now at 80 percent containment because of low temperatures, foggy conditions and hard work by the fire crews. The vegetation fire broke out just before 1 p.m. on Sunday in the 4700 block of Domingos Road just west of Buellton, and was rapidly spreading due to windy conditions. Winds were steady at 12 miles per hour with gusts of up to 22 mph.

GPS mapping also upped the acreage to 696 burned, according to Santa Barbara County Fire officials. 

Luckily there were no structures damaged or anyone injured. 

Firefighters will continue to mop up and extend containment lines, reaching 100 percent containment at roughly 8 pm tonight.
