Around 1,000 campers and 4,000 residents fled the area near Los Padres National Forest after a fast-moving fire broke out Monday and burned through 1,000 acres by the end of the day. U.S. Forest spokesman Andrew Madsen said the fire was only about 5 percent contained by Monday evening. The white fire broke out at around 2:45 p.m. Monday about 12 miles north of Santa Barbara, sweeping through a Forest Service outpost and partially burning a service vehicle. No homes had been burned, but up to 5,000 residents have been asked to evacuate as the city was engulfed with smoke.
