Be sure to check today's Los Angeles Times for the coverage of Santa Barbara's Jesusita fire, at the following article and elsewhere, "In Santa Barbara, a Raging Line of Flames and Smoke" (via Memeorandum):
Fire in the Sky: Flames from the Jesusita blaze threaten a home in Santa Barbara's Mission Canyon late Thursday. Fire officials upped their estimate of the burned acreage from 3,500 to 8,600 and put the number of homes damaged or destroyed at 80. Firefighters waited to see if the area's notorious sundowner winds would carry the flames down the mountain.
