Presumably, based on actual data, if people are housed then: they have heat. They have electricity. They have a cooktop, perhaps a microwave. They no longer need to start fires to cook or stay warm.

LOL Can't wait to see the penalty box to check out that deleted comment. :) Roger in your estimate how many vegetation fires have we seen this year? 20-30?

To help answer your question I checked my recent tweets from this year relating to vegetation fires along the 101 between goleta and montecito, and I've got 18. Though I have missed some so I'd say 22. But of course that's not an official number, but it's probably around there

Thank you for the info SA. if those numbers stay steady it means we will have 66 veg fires this year. I cant remember years past where we have had so many

Better a lot of little fires than a big fire. However, these little fires are not enough to mitigate the dead/dry/overgrown fuels throughout our community. I fear we will end up having big fires once things get hotter, drier, and windier. Why can’t we just prune our trees and clear out dead/overgrown brush?!?!?! We don’t have to live with this hazard, it is well within our power to address the problem before something terrible happens.

The Fire Station on Carrillo once again makes a left turn to the same spot it does twice a day.
Overdose, unresponsive drunk, campfire, crazy guy trying to burn out a neighbor in the encampment.
Exceeded only by the Cacique station who goes left to find the same guy passed out at Milpas Mc Donalds, right on Milpas to treat the same guy passed out at Cabrillo field. Rt on Cacique to treat the same guy under the overpass by Marborg. It's outdoor hospice care

Gee what is the City Council going to say when on a windy day, one of these fires due to the homeless encampments, gets out of control and burns down part of the city. Then we will actually have real homeless people with no place to live. These other folks IMO carelessly starting these fires are just "vagrants" with no concern for anyone but themselves.

Has anyone wondered if the city of beautiful Santa Barbara has an arsonist among us? I’m sure the homeless don’t help... However..this many fires? ... seems suspicious to me...No matter how anyone thinks of the homeless.. setting purposeful fires is illegal and immoral
