Gap Fire- Goleta

Well, they may not have to cancel any races this weekend, but over 1500 homes have been evacuated in Goleta because of the fire they're calling "The Gap Fire", some of them less than a mile from where my parents live. I talked to a friend tonight who was getting stuff from her parents' house (they were evacuated), and she said the fire was so close, she could hear it-- not what I would call relaxing. Hopefully the fire will burn the brush that hasn't been burned for over 50 years but leave the houses...
