On Monday, December 7th, through Wednesday, December 9th, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department will be conducting a state-sanctioned vegetation management burn on the Spaulding Ranch in the area between Tims Road and Midland School in the Santa Ynez Valley. This strategic fuels reduction burn will decrease fuel load within the burn area. Fire department personnel from the Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo operational areas, as well as Cal Fire and the Los Padres National Forest will all be participating in the burn.

The operation is expected to start each day at 0700 and will be visible throughout the area. As with all prescribed burns, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department will be working closely with the National Weather Service, monitoring weather conditions.
