Wildfire in Santa Barbara Causes Concern for Homeowners
I’m Ed Smith, a Santa Barbara car accident lawyer. A wildfire in Santa Barbara County, called the Alamo fire, has been burning since July 6 and has grown to over 19,000 acres. Now, a new fire has been reported around the area of Cachuma Lake. Crews from Cal Fire, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, Ventura and Los Angeles Counties are there battling the blaze, and more help is expected. The fire spread to both sides of Highway 154, which is expected to be closed for a few days in the area of what has been named the Whittier Fire.
