What caused the fire in Southern Santa Barbara County??

The fire was reportedly caused by “wind-whipped vegetation,” Noozhawk reported. 

Winds from the northwest were measured blowing 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph.

“Winds up there obviously are the biggest concern both because they could ground the tankers and push that fire,” said Andrew Madsen, spokesman for the Los Padres National Forest. 

According to Captain Nikki Stevens of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, the greatest concern is “Refugio Canyon which has a lot of vegetation in the upper reaches that hasn’t burned in decades, along with a number of structures.”

Which areas have evacuation warnings?

Evacuations are in order for Arroyo Hondo Canyon, Refugio Canyon, Refugio State Beach, El Capitán State Beach, and El Capitan Canyon campground as an estimated 3,900 acres have been burned.


Highway 101 has been closed from Highway 1 at Las Cruces and Winchester Canyon/Cathedral Oaks Road in Goleta.

A temporary evacuation center located at Dos Pueblos High School at 7266 Alameda Avenue is available for shelter and other resources. 

For animal evacuations, the Santa Barbara County Animal Services advises to call 805-681-4332 for assistance and livestock can be taken to the Earl Warren Showgrounds.
