The 101 Freeway is closed and evacuations are underway as a fast-moving wildfire in the mountains of Santa Barbara County tops six-thousand acres.
The Alisal Fire started Monday october 11th 2021 and is growing by the hour as strong winds feed the flames.
It’s burning in the rural, northern part of the county, where the steep mountains meet the Pacific Ocean.
Evacuations are underway for the entire Refugio Canyon area and the El Capitan State Park and Campground.
Two-hundred firefighters are battling the flames from the ground and the air.
