Another fire rages in Santa Barbara, CA - Jesusita Fire - the 3rd major one in 10 months. The last fire (Tea Fire, November 2008) destroyed over 200 homes. This one has stretched further than the last fire, and so far taken about 75 homes with that number expected to rise.

As a resident of Santa Barbara, it is hard to see family, friends and associates evacuated, some losing their homes. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families that are affected, and to the fire personnel that are working around the clock battling the blaze.
