Alamo Fire evacuees free to return; Hwy. 154 along Whittier Fire reopens

Battle against Whittier Fire leads to evacuation order Hot, dry conditions may stoke wildfires in US West, forecasters warn

Hundreds of local government firefighters from as far south as the San Marcos Fire Protection Department and as far north as the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District are working side-by-side with the US Forest Service, Santa Barbara County Fire, CALFIRE and many other local agencies on the Whittier Fire.

West Camino Cielo at Highway 154 to Winchester Gun Club, Kinevan Road and all of Winchester Canyon Road excluding the community of Wagon Wheel, Langlo Ranch Road and Winchester Commons west to El Capitan Ranch Road are also under mandatory evacuation.

Signs are posted next to Whittier Fire information boards that say "If you fly, we can't". Throughout the day Saturday, the fire continued to creep down slope on the eastern, western and southern edges of the fire.

Fire and sheriff's officials concerned about the weather's impact on the blaze issued evacuation orders Friday evening for additional areas near Paradise Canyon Road from Highway 154.

The fire burned mainly in areas above the marine layer, McMillan said. These structures were damaged or destroyed during the early hours of the fire.

Defending champion Cubs trade for pitcher Quintana
Although Matt Rose and Bryant Flete are lower ranked prospects , the White Sox have successfully dealt Quintana on their terms. It's not that they can't, it's that they could conceivably choose not to, especially with Quintana in the fold through 2020.

Hudick added that fire crews were not expecting intense "sundowner" winds in the near future. Temperatures near Santa Ynez peak are expected to reach 79. Over the last several years, these fuels have been stressed by the severe drought conditions and a high percentage of the fuel bed is dead. The combination of old, dry fuels with a newly cured heavy grass crop contributed to the rapid growth of this fire.

For animal evacuation questions and offers of assistance, call the Animal Services hotline at (805) 681-4332.

"Fire crews will remain throughout the fire perimeter in the coming weeks to provide fire suppression fix, remove firefighting equipment, mop up and patrol", Cal Fire SLO wrote in a Sunday statement.

Sunday morning, 990 personnel were still assigned to the blaze, which broke out the afternoon of July 6 off Highway 166 at the east end of Twitchell Reservoir and has blackened 28,687 acres.

UPDATE: 7/9/17 at 8:30 P.M.: CalFire says the fire is now at just under 24,000 acres and ten percent contained. The cause remains under investigation.
