Thomas fire nears SB County line; evacuation warnings issued for Carpinteria

Ansen Roberts looks on at what is left of his Ventura home that was destroyed in the Thomas Fire on December 6, 2017.

Flames from the Thompson fire were within half a mile of the Santa Barbara County line by 1 a.m. Thursday and moving fast toward the north, and areas that had been issued an evacuation warning about four hours earlier were placed under mandatory evacuation orders.

Almost 30,000 people are under evacuation orders for the fire. Overnight, elderly patients were evacuated in wheelchairs from Ojai Valley Community Hospital in downtown Ojai. The California Highway Patrol reopened the southbound side of the 101 about 6:45 a.m.; patrol vehicles were escorting traffic along the coastal stretch. An evacuation shelter was opened at UC Santa Barbara's Multi Activity Center, 516 Ocean Road.
