Closed Fine Fabrics Santa Barbara Store early today. The Santa Barbara Jesusita Fire started in the canyon above our San Roque home. We're a few streets south of the evacuation line. We're sitting at the kitchen table. From here we have a view of the mountains, where smoke is billowing, helicopters are flying and dropping their buckets full of water and fire retardant. We're taking the time to get some work done that requires quiet concentration.
