On January 5, 2018, Santa Barbara County began flooding (pardon the pun) Social Media and broadcasting to its citizens of impending dangers of increased risk of flood/debris flows due to the #ThomasFire.
CAL FIRE is assisting Ventura County Fire Department and Santa Barbara County Fire in the Montecito, Summerland and Carpenteria areas (Santa Barbara County) due to flooding and mudflows.
PRO-ACTIVE NOT REACTIVE
Evacuation orders were issued on Sunday, January 7th for those living in or near the Thomas, Whittier, Sherpa and Rey Fire burn scars at noon on Monday, January 8th. This is due to an approaching winter storm to sure to greatly impact these areas.
Closures were beginning to occur as flooding in the area were rising. The CHP closed the NB lanes of US 101 at Seacliff & SB lanes at Milpas due to flooding from the Thomas Fire burn area. I-5 was left open as an alternate route. SR33 was also closed just north of Ojai. Santa Barbara CHP was still assessing damage in the area and requested all drivers avoid this area altogether. (1/9/2018 0515 Hours PST)
It was also said for Santa Barbara County residents in the evacuation warning and order areas to shelter-in-place or go to higher ground and staying off of roadways. Reports of mudslides, downed power lines and trees were said to be blocking roads. (1/9/2018 0602 Hours PST)
The Santa Barbara CHP closed all on and off ramps of US 101 between Seacliff and Milpas. CAL Trans District 5 was in the process of closing each ramp. They stated that there was a delay for road crews due to blockage. They warned drivers that if they entered either section, they could be trapped. (1/9/0218 0643 Hours PST)
Around 0832 Hours PST, the CHP updated the closure list to include US 101 as closed SB at Milpas, NB at Seacliff and SR 126. SR 33 was closed at Fairview. SR 150 was closed at Santa Ana.
Later the CHP closed US 101 between Milpas and SR 126. Drivers not heeding the CHP’s alerts about not entering the freeway were being reported getting stuck. Signage was not in shutdown areas because transportation crews weren’t able to get them up in time as they too were stuck. The freeway was listed as being impassable. (1/9/2018 1054 Hours PST)
Freeways and roads in the Montecito area were reported as blocked with water and debris over the roadways. The photos taken by Santa Barbara CHP show the extensive damage and devastating impacts in the area. Please heed all warnings and alerts from issuing Public Safety broadcasts or you too come became an unwanted and preventable statistic! (1/9/2018 1336 Hours PST)
The Red Cross has opened an evacuation shelter for the Burn Evacuation Order areas at the Santa Barbara City College Cafeteria. Access through the main college entrance. (1/8/2018 0750 Hours PST)
The large animal evacuation shelter for the Burn Areas Evacuation Order is at the Earl Warren Show Grounds.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
A small brush fire turned wildfire broke out close to 1600 hours PDT on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
The fire located off of Ribbonwood Road and Interstate 8, just East of El Cajon, California was originally reported as a 5-acre fire. It has since grown to 25 acres, says CAL FIRE.
At the time of this post, there were no threats to structure or persons, nor have there been any injuries reported.
We are unsure of the cause.
Limited details at the moment but will provide an update if there is any further fire activity.

Drought to Flooding
Someone lied when they said, “It never rains in California” just received another six – nine inches of rain on Friday evening (around 1900 hours) prompting massive flooding, many traffic accidents, drivers getting stuck in the mud and running into the river.
Sink Hole Swallows Cars, Fire Truck
One video circulating the internet of two cars being swallowed into a sinkhole in Wrightwood. Another shows where a fire truck sitting on the edge a sinkhole begins to skid sideways then topples on its right side down into the crater.
Water Rescues, Hard Road Closures
Swiftwater rescue teams were dispatched to rescue several drivers. Police Officers were responding to calls to areas where heavy traffic was located, conducting hard closures and waiting for CAL Trans and County Public Works to arrive to completely shutdown the area to traffic.
FACT: Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down & 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away. Be safe,turn around &don’t drown.

Yes, we know we are a little late to the game but I [have] been fighting the flu and hoping it is just a bit at the tail end. Now, that I am upright, thought I’d share what has been spreading like wildfire all over Social Media and is on the fire ground in AZ and CA – not a pretty sight.
Our Thoughts and Prayers are there for those are involved in this powerful wind-driven firestorm of 2016.
The fire started on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, around 0500 hours on two specific sites on the Arizona and California borders on the Colorado River Ranger District.
NOTE: Generally where there are two separate fire names, it is because they have started one name and it is changed over time to reflect a more accurate location. This fire is listed to be two different locations on both the AZ and on the CA sides. We are unsure if there were two different origins, so we’ll that up to the Fire investigators to figure that one out, but for the purpose of this post – we will refer to the #TopockFire as on the #AZFire side and the #PirateFire on the #CAFire side.
The fire is known by two names, #TopockFire on the Arizona side, is approximately two (2) miles West of Topock and Golden Shores, Arizona.
The #PirateFire is on the California side, about ten (10) miles SSE of Needles, California.
The cause is unknown, but it is listed as an active investigation. No updates from that investigation have been released.
Due to the fire being on both sides of the Arizona-California borders, Command is in an Unified Command Status.
There are about 165 personnel assigned to this incident, including Mutual Aid from the following:
- Bureau of Land Management
- Fish and Wildlife Service
- Arizona Dept of Transportation
- AZ Dept of Forestry
- BNSF Railroad
- Buckskin Fire Department
- Bullhead Fire Department
- CAL Transportation
- California Highway Patrol
- City of Needles
- Fort Mohave Fire Department
- Golden Shores Fire Department
- Kingman Fire Department
- Mohave Valley Fire Department
- PG & E
- San Bernardino County Fire Department
- San Bernardino County Probation
- San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office
- SW Gas Corporation
We are still trying to find out what type of crews, equipment and apparatus is on-scene but so far, we haven’t found that jackpot yet. We will put out more updates as information is received.
- 2200 total acres (both AZ-CA) as of 4/7/2016
- Pirates Cove Resort in California suffered some about 10% roof damage due to firebrands burning the thatch room.
- Evacuations of Park Moabi Mobile Home Park residents and Pirates Cove Resort employees and Campers occurred on 4/6/2016.
- Evacuations have been lifted on 4/7/2016 but employees and Campers are only allowed to recover their possessions with an escort.
- Park residents evacuation orders have been lifted and appears there are no restrictions returning to their homes.
- 40% containment status.
Windy conditions have arrived and firefighters have been able to establish containment lines. So far, they are reporting that they are holding.
Golden Shores, Arizona is reporting a warm temp of 89-degrees with 15% percipitation, 9% humidity and winds at 6-mph.
- Route 66 from Golden Shores to I-40.
- BLM using roadway for equipment and staging areas.
- Reports on Facebook are not accurate.
