Here's another map that seems to have more detail and is open to contributions from the community: http://bit.ly/4UnEC

this map is wrong..." West Camino Cielo" is actually East Camino Cielo.
when you get to the top of San Marcos Pass and you make a left ... it is East. i know it is confusing. in Santa Barbara we are facing South towards the ocean... check it out! please!

Google's error; talk to them.

The map comes directly from a Google Account; they sometimes do make mistakes.

Let's hope the fire doesn't make it that far.

The map is correct. It is north up, which means to the left is west and to the right east.

Midwesterner, it's a local thang; the mid-point is HWY 154, and to the left is West, and rightward is East. Google just futzed it up.

asking again, why doesn't the map show the approximate outline of the burn area?

The question was answered for you earlier:
------------
No one has compiled enough information or time to put together such a map; the fire has moved in so many directions today, and yesterday was shrouded in smoke.

Ray Ford and Emergency Information Offices, in conjunction with Fire commands, usually assemble that type of information but the situation has been so wide-ranging and fast moving.

-- WebAdmin

--------------
As soon as it is available and confirmed (rather than speculative), you will see it on our maps.

Thanks WebAdmin....the quote from Yarazul, "when you get to the top of San Marcos Pass and you make a left ... it is East. i know it is confusing. in Santa Barbara we are facing South towards the ocean... check it out! please!" threw me off.
I assume from Santa Barbara , heading to San Marcos Pass you're heading N/NW. So a left would be west, or SW, not east, as is stated.
Anyway, I looked at Mapquest and saw the Hwy 154 demarcation. Thanks for the correction to my incorrect defense of Google.
Following it all closely, praying for safety and a quick end to the fire.

Google Maps has both East and West Camino Cielo labeled as West.

There's been an update for warning evacuations south and east. Will this map be updated?
Thx

The split of west and east camino cielo occurs at the top of gibralter, no san marcos pass

The official map, updated by SB County, is at http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF...

It is located at the bottom right of this page: http://www.countyofsb.org/ceo/dept0.aspx

I've been monitoring it and they update it per evacuation updates.

Except their map doesn't have the most recent information, as it is still shows areas under Mandatory Evacuations, when they have been downgraded (as the map above shows) to warnings, allowing the residents to return.

"40% contained" means the fire is less than half contained? And yet mandatory evacuations have been 'downgraded" to "evacuation alert" so that people can "repopulate" their homes?. Moving back into areas of "evacuation alert" still means you have to be ready to leave, doesn't it? Why is everyone moving back into alert areas and unpacking, when this fire is not fully contained? I don't get this. And there is no up to date map, or any information that I can find - anywhere - that shows what is going on as of this moment. A little frustrating.

@stinkycatfish, you may be thinking of Mountain Drive; which divides at Coyote Road into Mountain Drive and East Mountain Drive, but has a funny relationship with Gibraltar.

Camino Cielo is bisected at San Marcos Pass (HWY 154).
