Brush fire in Santa Barbara on Old San Marcos Road (photos)
According to the Santa Barbara Independent a brushfire has broken out off Old San Marcos Road north of Cathedral Oaks Road. The fire was estimated at three to 3.5 acres as of 4:05 p.m. As of 5:30 p.m. the fire appears to be under control. I was driving on US-101 from Goleta toward Downtown when I saw the smoke and managed to turn off to snap a few photos. More shots are available in the gallery.
