Santa Barbara County fire investigators are trying to determine the cause of a massive three alarm fire early Friday morning which destroyed a housing complex under construction in Goleta, on UC Santa Barbara property.

The blaze was discovered at about 3:30 a.m., at Storke Road and Whittier Drive in Goleta.  The first firefighters on the scene reported 60 to 70 foot high flames.

It took about an hour to knock down the fire, which gutted a three story building under construction, two construction trailers, and the old clubhouse from the Ocean Meadows Golf Course.
