Thomas Fire Now 45% Contained and Grows to 270,000 Acres, 8,452 Fire Personnel,

Santa Barbara, CA..Weak northeast winds prevailed across the fire last night they are expected to shift to a south to southwest direction this afternoon. With the forecasted winds, temperatures are expected to be cooler and relative humidity higher allowing for favorable firefighting efforts. Areas of concern are above the coastal Santa Barbara County communities, including Santa Barbara, Montecito, and Summerland, and also Matilija Wilderness, Rose Valley, and Sespe river drainage north of Fillmore. The threat continues to Fillmore and surrounding agricultural values with fire being established in the Sespe drainage. Fire suppression repair and Damage Inspection will continue as appropriate based on fire conditions. Repopulation will continue as threats in previously evacuated areas decreases.
