As Thomas Fire Continues To Grow, Firefighters Set Up New Command Post In Santa Barbara County

Dec 13, 2017

It's a reality check about the growth of the Thomas Fire: a new command post has been established at Cachuma Lake in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The fire is currently edging along east Camino Cielo.

That path could take it to Gibraltar Road, over the ridge line down to Paradise Road and the camping areas along the Santa Ynez River.

There were two recent fires there, the Rey and White fires, which might serve as a fuel break.
