Fire in Sycamore Canyon: Mountain Drive Area Told to Evacuate

A 20-acre plus fire is burning in Sycamore Canyon according to Supervisor Salud Carbajal in an article at The Santa Barbara Independent. Apparently several structures at Westmont College have burned. Mountain Drive area residents have been asked to evacuate. This might be a good time to sign up for the Indy Alert.

Just last September Ray Ford at The Indy wrote about the 1977 Sycamore Canyon Fire and fire preparedness. That fire lasted seven hours, burned a few hundred acres, and destroyed 195 houses.
