Fire in Santa Barbara
We’re about 30 miles from Santa Barbara, in Ojai and we noticed yesterday that there was a rather large fire over the ridge. It made for a wonderful sunset as you can see.
Today, the smoke covered half the sky, and we’re waiting to hear more news about what’s going on. It’s still beautiful, and the sunsets are fantastic, we just hope everyone’s ok.
UPDATE We found out this fire has been going for over a month! And it just flared up again on Friday. And although we haven’t had any ash fall here,
Los Padres National Forest spokeswoman Kathy Good said the fire was burning through heavy vegetation, which is “generating a lot of smoke and ash that’s extending over to Santa Barbara and Montecito, basically to the coast.”
