a-1526478347 2 May 16, 2018 06:45 AM Small Brush Fire There are homeless encampments all along the Union Pacific easements, from Carpinteria to the west end of Goleta. They are also under many bushes/tress in the Caltrans easements. No wonder there are people begging at every off ramp. There are tents, furniture, and lots of trash at each camp. Looks like they have been there for a long time. This is what all rail passengers see as they travel through the area. Very sad. Very dangerous for those families who live near where these fires are stoked every night. Union Pacific, Caltrans, and the cities should have a program to clear out these encampments before they burn down whole neighborhoods along the tracks.
