Jesusita Fire – Days 1 & 2

The 2009 fire season started unexpectedly early here in Santa Barbara.  The smoke was clearly visible from my office window within an hour of its ignition and the following photos document its tremendous growth over the last two days.  (As always, you can click on the individual photos to view them larger.)
