Getting Closer: Fire Evacuation

See InciWeb for the latest on the ash that is in your car, home and lungs. Be careful if you have a respiratory issue. We thought Fiesta would be overwhelmed by gangs but it is really being showered by a thick layer of ash. Paradise Road is being evacuated....has it hit Santa Barbara yet? Do we need real local radio news now? I promised to talk about this more a week or more ago...isn't it time for a new KTMS or local public radio as Doc Searls suggests? Let's tell Doc Searls he is right and let's find someone to buy out or create a new local radio news station now.

Many County and municipal staffers from all over have been called into the Office of Emergency Services for fire respone on Saturday and maybe Sunday.

I now cannot bum a ride to Summerland early Saturday morning as I planned.

I am in the area of Rancho Ynecita/Baseline Roblar area, and we have enjoyed watching the fire come over the ridge- it was quite a sight last night- flames 200 feet in the air! What a sight. Good Luck to those in the path, remeber what is truly important when it comes time to leave- pack early and be prepared!! Don't question the folks ringing the alarm- just go and be thankful you have the means to get out! Good Luck!

it was surreal for sure

Is it my imagination or is KEYT just treating the Zaca fire as weather related news story? Their reporter John Palmentari was at the 8/4 Zaca fire news conference where Sheriff Brown mentioned while there is no immediate danger to Goleta, Santa Barbara, Summerland and Carp, he urged residents to have emergency kits and plans in case of the worst case possibility of the fire entering the SB County urban areas. What is wrong with them? USELESS! KCOY mentions it.
