When will officials release the cause of the Thomas Fire? I've been hearing a lot of rumors and some people seem convinced on one or another, but the easiest way to clear it up would be to release the facts. Does an edhat reader know?

For those not prone to such hallucinations, the fires could benefit from some of the dew that exists in the real world most of us inhabit.

ALWAYS RUNNING and RICHYRICH are on the money. No mystery here. Count your blessings, as bad, and as uncomfortable as things were, it could have been A LOT worse.

When this started in Santa Paula I heard it started behind a store in a field - and the field is frequented by transients. Interested to see what the investigation reveals.

I suffered major losses in the Jesusita Fire! And no, I did not join the class action lawsuit to sue Stihl for manufacturing a weedeater that had inadequate warnings that it could generate a spark and produce a fire. What a bunch of nonsense! All I'm asking is that people be reasonable and understand what a horrific weather event we had and not sign up with the dirtbag lawyers!

Via online news forum NextDoor, I received an email on Dec 23, Source of Fire: 2 sources, Edison Crews started fire in dry grass near Thomas Aquinas College at 6:20 PM, Edison Transformer exploded around 7 PM near Koenigstein Road in Upper Ojai.

Fires start for 1000's of reasons. Fires turn into disasters when we have crazy weather events with low humidity and super High winds. I really hope people don't turn to the typical blame game. And please, let's certainly not engage a bunch of ambulance chasing lawyer's to go out and sue anybody or anything we can. Sue mother nature on this one!

Negligence is not so cut and dried. Who do you sue for 60+mph gusting winds that fanned sparks that would otherwise have been harmless or easily extinguished? Maybe if you climate change deniers weren't so hellbent on living in denial.

What a pile of crap. It has nothing to do with a risk free life. If someone's negligence hurt YOU, you would be calling lawyers all day long.

Yeah, but some folks expect a risk free life. Anything that throws an unknown or a risk into their equation/routine has to be sued, fired, jailed or deported.

The source is known. I think there were two sites. The official comments (online, via County site) say SCEdison was the source, near Thomas Aquinas College. Check the official Santa Barbara County website, and search for fire information.

Transformer.... transponders don't need to have the brush cleared to operate.

I think you might be confusing this one with another one that also just happened. The one you are referring to happened up in Los Alamos area I believe.

Heard everything from So Cal Edison started it to a guy was burning a couch in his backyard. Agree, some people seem convinced on the couch burning one but who knows?
