Santa Barbara Jesusita Fire photos from on the Mesa

The electricity went out on us today at work, so I packed up my stuff (grabbed all our hard drives from the office to keep them close/safe) and headed home to the Mesa where I found some views of the Jesusita Fire.

Until about 2:30ish today the fire looked like it was just smoldering with no interest in getting bigger… but when our electricity went out around 3:30/4 the fire had gone crazy and the sky had turned black over my business partner Ricky’s house.
