Straight from the InciWeb site:

Summary

Saturday, July 1, 0730 hours

The fire is holding at 700 acres. The fire is located on Paradise Road, east of the Ranger Station on the north side of the Santa Ynez River. Daylight allowed a new estimate of the fire size at 700 acres. Low winds and humidities are currently helping limit the fire spread; however, expected temperatures in the 80’s this afternoon are a concern. No structures are currently threatened. There have been no injuries.

Paradise Rd. is closed beyond the Ranger Station. Red Rock and Upper Oso recreation areas are closed. Fireworks are prohibited in Los Padres National Forest. Campfires are restricted to fire usage sites.

Although the growth potential for the fire is considered “high” as of this report, the “the South end of the fire is lined. Good progress has been made along the west flank. Firelines are not yet completed on the east and north flanks.”
