updated: Mar 12, 2014, 4:19 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I smell smoke. I live near Turnpike and Calle Real. Just heard a helicopter go overhead. Is something going on up the hill?

Thanks Roger. The smell is pretty strong. Too warm for a neighbor's fireplace.

Maybe more controlled burns? There were some in Goleta reported yesterday, even though it's high wind and fire warnings.

I haven't heard anything but I was monitoring the Granada clean up I'll check those other places again..I just heard Fire Patrol 11 broadcasting 5 miles West of Lake Cachuma then Eastbound operations normal..I'll check the other sites.

If you think theres a fire in the area you can always call in and request a smoke check.

Fire Patrol is a Copter up by Lake Cachuma..Engine 13 just reported they are on a "Food on the stove" call and they will be there 15 more minutes for smoke removal..Now I have to look up where they are at.

I live at Hollister and Turnpike. I saw the helicopter fly over once around that time- it was CalSTAR returning to Santa Maria from the hospital.

I wonder why nobody complains about the cost of sending out crews to check on these burnt dinners? I know, I know... I'm being a troll.

But why is it okay to help out someone who forgot dinner on the stove or fell asleep on the couch with a lit cigarette but if someone gets lost in mountains they need to fend for themselves? So weird.

It has been extremely stinky/smoky off and on near Turnpike/Hollister for the past week. No clue what, too hot to smell the stench of burning leaves

Will people still burn garbage, leaves even though it's illegal, and warming fires that might be your answer..

If the burning dinners are left unattended they start structure fires, the Fire Defartment doesn't know they are responding to "Food on the stove" calls when they go out usually they are responding on a smoke investigation or a smoke alarm going off..People that get lost in the mountains need to carry cell phones and many do. I haven't heard of Emergency responders not showing up on those calls..
