On Wednesday the Alisal Fire, 11 miles west of Goleta, California spread two miles further west and one mile to the east. It is still spreading eastward through the five-year-old footprint of the Sherpa Fire.
Air tankers used the decreasing winds Wednesday to apply retardant to the north side. This reinforced the West Camino Cielo road from Gaviota to the west. Later in the afternoon, crews carried out a firing operation on the road.
Additional evacuations were ordered Wednesday night for the area west of Arroyo Hondo to the intersection of Hwy. 101 and Hwy. 1 includes Vista Del Mar School, Gaviota Beach and Gaviota Beach. Also, evacuation orders have been issued for the ranch that President Ronald Reagan used to own, also known as the Western White House. More information on evacuations. )
Thursday morning fire officials said the fire had burned 16,801 acres. Resources assigned to the fire Wednesday evening included 31 hand crews, 143 engines, and 8 helicopters for a total of 1,306 personnel, an increase of 541. The fire is now managed by a California Type 1 Incident Management Team led by Jerry McGgowan.
On Thursday firefighters are going to be faced with wind directions shifting about every six hours. The morning will see southwest winds, which could turn southeasterly by the afternoon. They then shift to the northwesterly evening. The relative humidity will be in the low 20s, but will rise to the mid-50s Wednesday night. Onshore winds are forecast for Friday.
