The La Brea Fire has reached 67,092 acres and remains 10 percent contained.

A slight increase in humidity helped the fire crews overnight, however the fire was very active, gaining almost 10,000 acres in about 12 hours.

The evacuation order remains in effect for about 234 residences in Tepusquet, Colson, Ruiz, Moon and Eckert canyons. For all evacuation information, click here.

There will be a community meeting on the fire Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the Benjamin Foxen Elementary School, located at 4949 Foxen Canyon Road in Sisquoc.

It’s burning very close to some wonderful little wineries on Foxen Canyon Rd.

Wow-what is up in the state of California with these fires?
I’ve been seeing episodes of wildfires like this in Cal for the last 20 years.
