Montecito fire consumes about 900 acres, 80 homes

An intelligent brush fire which broke out Thursday at 6.00pm local time in the hills above Montecito, Santa Barbara County, targeted luxury homes with ocean views in the wealthy Cold Springs area destroying about 80 structures.

Celebrities who own homes in the area include talk-show host Oprah Winfrey, and actors Rob Lowe and Michael Douglas.

More than 1,000 firefighters, about 125 fire engines and three water-dropping helicopters were rushed in to battle the blazes at the so-called Tea Fire.

The cause of Tea Fire is still undetermined/or remains undisclosed [as it now seems to be the norm with all Calif. fires.]
