Firefighters are battling a big fire at a warehouse on the Central Coast.

The fire was reported just before 4 Monday afternoon on the 1200 block of West Stowell Road, in Santa Maria.

Two men have quite a story to tell today, after the boat they were in capsized in the Channel Islands, and they had to be rescued by the Coast Guard.

It happened Saturday afternoon.

Parts of the Central and South Coasts have had some spring showers, but meteorologists say there are no flooding concerns from the system for brush fire burn zones.

A low moving through the region dropped some rain north of Point Conception Sunday and Monday.

Two men are behind bars following a carjacking in Ventura County which ended following a chase and four city block search of a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley.

It started just before three a.m. Monday, when a man was getting into his truck near Oxnard Boulevard and Commercial Avenue in Oxnard. Police say two men armed with a rifle and knife carjacked the vehicle.

Struggles Continue For Those Who Had Homes Destroyed, Damaged By Thomas Fire and Flood

It’s a warm, sunny morning, and a stream of water less than a yard wide trickles down Montecito Creek, just off of East Valley Road in Montecito. It is deceivingly peaceful, almost serene here. Less than a hundred feet away, Mary Beth Myers walks under a cluster of sycamore and oak trees. This is where her cottage once stood, an area called Old Spanish Town, where a cluster of small homes were washed away by the January 9th storm.

Live Feed: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testifies Before Congress

Zuckerberg is set to answer questions about protecting user data after news that a data-mining and political consulting firm used that data to try and target Facebook users during the 2016 election.

The mayor of Ithaca, N.Y., wants to create a place where people can use heroin or other drugs injected drugs under supervision, in an effort to combat soaring deaths from overdoses. But that's a lot easier said than done.

Mohammed Sayed is not one of those people who particularly relish the prospect of hitting young men on the butt with a big stick.

But he is certainly prepared to do so to defend the girls and women who frequent the neatly groomed, palm-dotted municipal park in the Pakistani city of Gujranwala where he works as a guard.

The park was designed as a place for relaxation and family recreation (it even includes some ramshackle carnival rides). But it had turned into a prowling ground for young men.

Texas' top appeals court has dismissed the remaining felony abuse-of-power charge against former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The Court of Criminal Appeals also upheld a lower court's ruling dismissing the other charge against Perry.

This all started when a grand jury indicted Perry in August 2014, as Perry was ramping up his campaign for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. His bid came to an end in September 2015. Perry was the first in the crowded Republican field to suspend his campaign.

A mistrial has been declared in the trial of a 90 year old Santa Barbara County woman who was accused of planning the death of her daughter, who had ALS.

Santa Barbara County prosecutors filed murder charges against Marjorie Good in conjuction with the March, 2013 death of her daughter Heidi.

Prosecutors say the Solvang woman along with caretaker Wanda Nelson conspired to kill the 52 year old woman.

Defense attorneys contended that a problem with breathing gear led to the woman’s death.

Nelson was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter last week.

Trump Grabs His First Congressional Endorsement

Feb 24, 2016

Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., became the first member of Congress to publicly endorse Donald Trump for president.

In a statement, Collins said the business tycoon has the "guts and the fortitude" for the Oval Office.

Like Trump, Collins is a successful businessman — he is one of the wealthiest members of Congress — and shares Trump's view that the government needs to be run more like a business.

Collins had been a public supporter of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, but Bush exited the race after his disappointing finish in the South Carolina primary over the weekend.

A South Coast city approved a unique proposal to host a college in part of its city hall complex.

The Ventura City Council last night approved a deal for Brooks Institute to lease more than 20,000 square feet of space in the City Hall North complex, as well as some space in the Eric Stanley Gardner Building.

Brooks is currently located outside of Ventura, off of Highway 33.

The college wanted to have a more urban campus.

Two people are facing a variety of criminal charges following an early morning car, and foot chase in a South Coast community involving a Sheriff’s Department helicopter, and K-9 dogs.

A Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputy noticed two people sitting in a car parked outside of a convenience store on the 1100 block of Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria around 3 a.m. yesterday.

When the officer ran the license plates, he discovered the car had been stolen in Simi Valley. An effort to stop the car as it was leaving led to a chase through Carpinteria.

We know smoking is bad for us, and the fact is fewer people are smoking.

Yet the latest statistics show 11% of high school students in California say they’ve used tobacco products in the last 30 days.

It’s one thing to give a ride to a friend, or to make a donation to help someone in need.

But, a Ventura County man literally gave one of his organs to save someone else’s life.

Lance Orozco has this incredible story of selflessness, and a budding new friendship.

They looked like ships straight out of the 1700’s, and appeared in movies like “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
