SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Jail Operations at the Santa Barbara County Jail are back to normal with the exception of a housing unit that is still on lockdown following a trash can fire on Sunday. The fire caused inmates to be temporarily relocated within the jail.

The 27 inmates in the housing unit are under investigation for their involvement in starting the fire and refusing to cooperate with evacuation orders. Upon completion of the investigation, the Sheriff's Office will request the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office to file charges against the inmates identified as being involved with the incident.
