SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. — The Santa Barbara County Fire Department will be conducting a research burn on the Sedgwick Reserve in the Santa Ynez Valley, just east of and adjacent to Figueroa Creek. The goal of this burn is to study the effects of fire behavior on varying rangeland vegetation types and vegetative loads. Approximately three acres of grass of varying height will be burned.
Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) staff have reviewed the Smoke Management Plan and provided conditions to minimize smoke impacts in Santa Barbara County. The burn will be conducted when the meteorological conditions are highly favorable to direct smoke away from population centers.
