UCSB Lagoon Fire
updated: Jun 16, 2014, 8:49 PM

By John Palminteri

Smoke and flames on the UC Santa Barbara campus were part of a controlled fire that wiped out about a half acre of land by the campus lagoon earlier today. Eventually new plants will cover the area. Darwin Richardson with the Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration says the fire burns so hot, it destroys unwelcomed grasses and weeds along with "bad" seeds on the surface. The native seeds are stronger, and handle the heat. Eventually with winter and spring rains they come to life. A Santa Barbara County Fire was on a crew keeping the fire in check and making sure the burn went just as planned. UC Santa Barbara plans to plant 3000 native plants in the area, from about 20 different species.
