Gap Fire in Goleta, CA

Here are a few photos we got from our friend to show you what the Gap fires near our house looked like (1st photo- black smoke over Goleta, 2nd photo- the many spot fires in the mountains). They were about a mile away or so from our apartment and covered over 9,000 acres. Out of 335 fires currently burning in California, our fire was number 1. Arnie finally declared it a state of emergency on the 5th day of burning. Check it out when it was at its worst. We wisely took refuge in San Diego for the worst of it.
