    Fire in Santa Barbara
    A brush fire broke out in Montecito around 6pm tonight and has spread to Santa Barbara. My brother had to evacuate with just a change of clothes. He's safe, but obviously worried about his home. Thoughts and prayers appreciated! Any of you SB ABWers, stay safe!

    I hope your brother's home escapes the fire. At least you can rest easy knowing he is safe!

    I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sure hope his home is ok.

    Winds wiped through during the night causing horrible destruction, but its looking better this morning, at least as long as the winds are manageable. Montecito is an area in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains, but very close to the Pacific Ocean, and wind pockets are present throughout the area.

    My brother was able to go back in this morning and get some of his important stuff, including his computer and work. His place is safe for now, but he's monitoring the situation and ready to evacuate again at a moment's notice. Hopefully the firefighters will get a handle on it before the afternoon/evening winds kick up.

    Oh, and I heard Oprah's home was safe for now, but she evacuated her pets to the Four Seasons hotel.
