KEYT's Tracy Lehr has good video on twitter, Goleta flare up tonight. She also posted the evacuation of Kinevan tonight. ttps://twitter.com/KEYTNC3Tracy. She's on top of it! Go, Tracy! Please keep all the current news coming over the weekend, too!

Also, if you go by any of the Forestry Stations and see their flags at half mast, it is because they lost one of theirs on a fire today, thank them if you see them, a tragic loss.
Also, we have fire crews that are comprised of inmates who volunteer to do the firefighting to help their community, one of those also was lost today.
Neither of them were on this fire, but their loss is still tragic.
May their families know that they are in our prayers.

I will try and keep more pictures coming, sorry I have been tardy in this, we're kinda occupied up here. Mrs. MM and I want to thank ALL of YOU for your kind thoughts and prayers. Hopefully we will skate past this and all those super firefighters will persevere and we will all get through this.

Thank you! These are pics so desperately needed in local media reporting. That is - actually having timely information about what is actually being done, for folks who live here up on The Pass.

Thank you! Great photo of Forest Service firefighter, watching, waiting. That dozer line in Bear Creek, can see transmission tower. Let's hope that dozer line holds, and we keep the lights on.
