No Further Damage in Mission and Rattlesnake Canyons

Situation There Similar to Yesterday Morning

Friday, May 8, 2009

In the Mission Canyon and Rattlesnake Canyon areas: Driving in through Montecito, taking Highway 192 to Sycamore Canyon Road and then Mountain Drive and Las Canoas, Stewart said, he saw evidence of a few spot fires during the night, but no additional structure damage.

It is definitely still smouldering in Rattlesnake Canyon near Camino Cielo, he said, and fire engines and crews were set up in driveways. Many were catching their breath, taking naps or talking on cell phones to their families.

The same general scene repeated itself on Tunnel Road, which the night before last had been heavily hit.
