Current Fire Status |  Very strong north winds materialized this morning around 0700 increasing fire behavior significantly in the Santa Barbara Front Country. Fire made an aggressive southward push into the community of Montecito, impacting some structures there.

Red flag warnings will remain in place over various portions of the fire over the next operational period for high wind and low humidity. Critical fire weather will continue over the fire area, with north/northeast winds forecasted. This weather pattern will be conducive to west- and southward fire growth, continuing to threaten the communities of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Summerland in Santa Barbara County.

North winds will also exasperate the threat to Fillmore and surrounding agricultural values, with fire being established in the Sespe drainage. Mop-up operations in previously burned areas will be ongoing. On the north side of the fire, direct and indirect line construction will occur to contain fire that has spread north of Highway 33 and Rose Valley Road.

Direct line construction, where possible, will continue within the Zaca Fire burn scar to Highway 33 Fire suppression repair and Damage Inspection will continue as appropriate based on fire conditions.
