Crews are battling two small vegetation fires that broke out along Betteravia Road west of Santa Maria, according to a Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman.
The Union fire was reported shortly before 5 p.m. and consists of two small fires in a heavily-wooded area 4 miles west of Santa Maria, said County Fire spokesman Mike Eliason.
Both fires were reported along West Betteravia Road, with one near the intersection of Ray Road and the other 1 mile away at Sinton Road.
The larger of the two fires has burned 2 acres, and both fires combined have the potential to burn up to 5 acres, according to County Fire spokesman Capt. Daniel Bertucelli.
Extinguishing the fires will take a little work due to the heavy brush, Bertucelli said, adding there is a full vegetation response on scene.
Santa Maria, Guadalupe and county firefighters responded to the scene.
