A strong, fast-moving wildfire began last night in Santa Barbara, California and has already destroyed 100 homes and put many more at risk. Residents of the impacted and endangered areas urgently need information about the fire path, evacuated areas, road closures, and other important safety factors. A group in Santa Barbara quickly put together a My Map containing extensive information that can help keep residents informed and safe. If you are in the impacted area or would like to stay abreast of the situation, we hope you'll find this map valuable.
