On Wednesday afternoon, June 15th, a fire broke out in the Los Padres National Forest. By midnight, the fire had consumed roughly 2 square miles of land, approximately 1,100 acres, reported Captain Dave Zaniboni of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department. As the fire continued to expand, both sections of Highway 101 were closed. As a result, many campers and homeowners in the following nearby areas were ordered to evacuate:

  • El Capitan Canyon
  • El Capitan Ranch
  • El Capitan State Beach
  • Refugio State Beach
  • Refugio Canyon
  • Venadito Canyon
  • Las Flores Canyon
