Residents are advised to adhere to the closure order and stay out of the forest until Los Padres National Forest deems it safe for the public to reenter the area and to be mindful on any notices and warning put out by the Santa Barbara Office of Emergency Services and the Ventura County Office of Emergency Management. That size is the equivalent of more than Dallas and Miami combined. In addition to causing massive destruction, the fire also contributed to earlier this week. However it started, the fire was fueled by strong Santa Ana winds and by the overall lack of precipitation this fall and winter, turning the brush, tall grass and chaparral in the area into fuels, according to the Forest Service.

The fire remains under investigation, but not before destroying more than 1,000 structures and damaging 280 structures.
