Prognosis Optimistic for Gap Fire

The Santa Barbara Independent reported that Gap Fire Officals are optimistic about containing the fire given good weather conditions.

Here's what Incident Commander Wally Bennett had to say, according to The Indy:
Calling the southern boundary of the fire, which has been threatening much of Goleta for the past four days, “extremely good at this time” and being similarly upbeat about the northeast limits of the flames licking at edges of Old San Marcos Road and West Camino Cielo, Bennett painted a picture of the human-born wildfire that was markedly sunnier than just 24 hours ago. “The news so far is good — real good.” Said Bennett, before adding with distinct caution, “But we still have a lot of work to be done… This is far from over. There is still a lot of potential here.”
