Firefighters in California battling with a wind-driven brush fire that has forced thousands from their homes in Santa Barbara County on Tuesday are hoping that a bout of rain from a cold front moving across the state will help bolster their efforts by evening.

The Cave fire broke out just after 4 p.m. Monday near East Camino Cielo and Painted Cave Road in the Los Padres National Forest.

California: Flames devour green and dry ground

Santa Barbara provincial authorities declared a local emergency on Sunday evening after a fire broke out in the Los Padres National Forest.

The fire spread rapidly and covered about 4,300 acres by the evening and has not yet been contained, the province said in a statement, noting that the fire, dubbed the “cave fire,” was advancing “towards densely populated areas in Santa Barbara and Goleta”.

The fire was zero percent contained as of Tuesday afternoon, Jim Harris, the Los Padres National Forest fire chief, said at a news conference.

Fire broke out at the end of the area’s dry season, he said, adding that “extreme” off shore winds were pushing the fire in several directions.

The office of Governor Newsom said more than 5,000 residents were forced to evacuate, but some people will be allowed to return home by Tuesday afternoon.

Rain was also expected for Wednesday before 10 a.m., the forecast said, with a high of 61 degrees.
