Sorry, Roger, Magic Mountain on your car fire posting.
Why are you posting this unrelated fire nowhere near here. The car fire Roger reported was right here in Santa Barbara. Engine 1 from the Carrillo, main station and Engine 5 from Modoc Rd. It was not an out of county mutual aid response.
TAGDES - Yes it is on the wrong thread, but many people here go to Magic Mountain, and could have friends or family who were there. Since I have friends and relatives in many places, fires anywhere in California, or the US for that matter, are of interest to me.

Fires have been so difficult for me the last few years that I freak out reading about stuff like this since if the temperature was hot, the brush were dry and the Santa Annas blowing, it could be at the ocean in an hour.
