Goleta Devastated by Brush Fire as Record Heat Burns Path of Destruction

The fire is one of several that erupted Friday as temperatures topped 100 degrees in many Southern California areas and embers ignited tinder-dry brush.

By Friday night, a wildfire started to move through Goleta in Santa Barbara County and engulfed 35 acres by 10:45 p.m. local time.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says Friday afternoon that the fire in Alpine is about 150 acres (0.23 sq. miles) and had no containment.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for 3,200 people, Santa Barbara County said in a news release.

Multiple structures are threatened, damaged or destroyed, Brady said.

Hundreds of firefighters, from Santa Barbara County and throughout the region, including San Luis Obispo County, are on scene to fight the fire, along with more than 30 engines and support aircraft. According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the fire broke out around 5.40 p.m local time (8.40 p.m. EDT) and it affected the city of Duarte and the MTA Gold Line track.

California Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for Siskiyou County, citing "extreme peril" to people and property.

A wildfire raging through drought-stricken timber and brush near California's border with OR killed one person and destroyed multiple structures as it burns largely out of control, authorities said Friday. It is 37 percent contained, and evacuation orders are in place.

While the number of fires is closed to the five-year average for the first half of the year - 2,507- The acreage is more than double the 23,989-acre average.

Record-breaking heat contributed to the danger this past week. The Weather Service forecast called for continued hot weather for much of the area Saturday.

A Utah fire that burned 90 structures and forced the evacuation of more than 1,100 people in a mountain area near a popular fishing reservoir was growing on Friday, but fire officials hoped to control it soon.

The center says, at last check, the facility was still standing and the fire only burned around the edges.

"Folks certainly should be aware of fires around them and what's going on", he adds.
