It looks like another long hot Summer ahead, with three wildfires already. We saw each of them yesterday flying back from Lompoc. Not having heard about the Windmill Fire NW of Buellton it was a surprise to see a new fire there with air tankers and ground crews hard at work. The nearby Las Cruces Fire still had plenty of crews working, and some quickly went to help on the new fire. In the hills above Goleta clouds beyond the mountains cast the Holiday Fire burn area in an ominous light.
