I'm in Noleta, near Sheriff's Station and started smelling smoke around 1:30pm. Can't see it. Anyone else?

It's probably another homeless fire by the tracks or behind the Cox headquarters in the bushes.

A new camp was set up across from Mira Vista and pretty close to the Fire Station on Calle Real, (Mountain side of the 101). As we drove south on Calle Real we could plainly see pup tents, a bbq, a very neat clean looking setup!

We all have ptsd regarding smoke at this point! I know I hate when my neighbors have their fireplace going, stresses me out since the Thomas fire!

I smelled smoke for some distance at around 11 a.m., while riding along the bike path in Noleta. Believe it or not, people are already firing up their wood burning stoves/fireplaces. Do what you can to keep your lungs safe: don't breathe in any kind of smoke.

10:17 = I never said "coal was okay for those Londoners." Did you read my post, it was pretty short. Try again.

Guess that offended some people who think watching the pretty flames trumps neighbors' being able to breathe! True about it being coal not wood in old London's miama, however.

In reply to: NOV 08, 2019 10:13 AM-----Yes. And people used to think asbestos was harmless and we had leaded gasoline (=smog), too. You think smoke from coal was okay for those Londoners? You need to educate yourself about that and wood smoke in general.

You're right and I stand corrected. The rest of my message, however, is correct.

LUVADUCK - please re-read your "old-time London" history. It was under heavy smoke from COAL burning factories during the industrial revolution. Stop trying to demonize wood burning fire places.

Enlightened residential areas have an ordinance against wood-burning fireplaces because they cause health risk, foul the air and create soot that blows over the whole neighborhood. Inhaling smoke is particularly a danger to the elderly or ill. Fortunately, wood fueled fireplaces are easily replaced by authentic-looking gas or electric "fires" for those who crave the ambience. Old-time London was under a pall of heavy smoke all the time and it cost lives.

There's a controlled burn up in the No. County. Smoke smell was really strong in the evening in the Lompoc area last night. Might be from today's burn up here.
