Fire evacuations are being lifted as cool, moist air tames a wind-driven wildfire that has burned dozens of homes along the outskirts of Santa Barbara. More than 30-thousand people had been under mandatory evacuation orders, after the fire erupted last Tuesday on the face of a steep mountain above the city. Local winds sweeping inland and down the face of the mountains drove the fire into outlying neighborhoods Wednesday afternoon, and again late Thursday and early Friday, causing most of the destruction. The terrain also helped to drive the expansion of the fire, raging on the coastal mountain slopes. Fire officials report the blaze is now 70% contained, and full containment is expected by Wednesday. 5 air tankers, 10 helicopters and more that 4-thousand personnel are fighting the blaze. The fire has destroyed more than 75 homes and 22 are damaged. Damages are estimated at $10.8 million dollars. 145 properties remain under mandatory evacuation orders. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Jesusita Fire and other emergencies demonstrate the effects of Santa Barbara Traffic Deconstruction. Upper State Street has been narrowed. The City Traffic Department still plans to narrow the "De La Vina Y" intersection of De La Vina and State Street. The Fire trucks shown stuck in traffic on State Street and on Highway 101 were during no fire. Please contact your Councilmember and ask what they will do to promote better traffic circulation- for our safety. Posted by CarsAreBasic.org Video from sbcag.COM (not org)

Santa Barbara Jesusita Fire, Believe that this was one of the worst days
The Jesusita Fire has now taken over more than 2000 acres of land and has destroyed more than 75 homes and structures... Hundreds of homes and commercial structures are threatened by close proximity to the roaring flames. The flames seen from the city seem to be unrealistically large. It is hard to imagine how large they really are as judging them from a distance is difficult. www.BryantSwanstrom.com
During a party at goleta beach we looked on as the Jesusita fire flared up again on the hills above Santa Barbara, moving west toward our house. So we headed home to help roommates pack up in the event of an evacuation and caught some crazy views of the fire while we were there. Congrats to Markus, who successfully defended his thesis today on violating Bell's inequality with Superconducting phase qubits. He won't forget this day for a while!

Timelapse of the Jesusita Fire taken from the roof of my house near 154 and Calle Real in Santa Barbara. The fire started on the 5th and was pretty small this morning after a calm night, but in the early afternoon the winds picked up and it expanded rapidly. The evacuation warning zone came within a few blocks of our place, so my roommates and I came home from UCSB to pack some things up just in case it expanded toward us. Currently, though, it seems to be moving mostly toward the south east. In the video, you might catch a few glimpses of helicopters doing water drops. They were working really hard to save a number of houses that are visible in the video at certain points. 30x speedup.
A fire that started Tuesday and been relatively quiet roared back into life as sundowner winds reached 40-60 mph late Wednesday afternoon. Over 20 homes had burned by nightfall. Firefighters were brought in from other counties to assist in the effort. Three firefighters from Ventura County were injured and transported to hospital for treatment. Governor Schwarzenegger proclaimed the area a state of emergency making it eligible for aid. Power lines are down throughout the area. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes. Currently the forecast is for winds to continue through Friday.

At 2:30pm on May 6 we thought this fire was over. Then the "sundowner" winds kicked in. Have you ever pointed a hair dryer at a fire? That's what this was like. In 15 minutes the fire simply EXPLODED. The images on this video were taken at 3:00pm. It shows the awesome destructive power fire.has.
The fire is moving toward Santa Barbara and fire crews are heading to stave it off.
