One of our historic restaurants is being threatened

by the Zaca Fire.
One of Santa Barbara County's most famous landmarks is now threatened by the month old Zaca fire.
Cold Springs Tavern sits on the top of San Marcos Pass, which is in the line of fire.
...The tavern has been around for 131 years and once served as a stage coach stop. These days it's a restaurant and famous "western-style" weekend hangout for travelers.

It has been featured on many national shows including "California's Gold" with Huell Howser and the Food Network with Rachel Ray. - KEYT
Who knew that you needed to wrap it up like a "baked potato" to save it, though...
Firefighters wrapped an historic tavern in aluminum on Tuesday to protect it from an advancing blaze that continued to threaten dozens of rural cabins in northern Santa Barbara County. - SanLuisObispo.com
