Santa Barbaras on fire....yet again

gap fire, santa barbara

This time in the hills just above Goleta.

Flames and smoke have been visible throughout the Santa Barbara metropolitan area as the blaze moves toward the canyons above western Goleta. Helicopters and air tankers were active early in the evening, but were called off when the skies darkened with night. There was an early threat to Windermere Ranch, but firefighters were able to protect the structures there. About 200 firefighters are currently battling the blaze, which is being called the Gap Fire and has burned about 50 acres so far.
