need Detailed MAP of progress of fire

I agree that maps are needed for locals and also families not familiar with streets in Goleta. It is difficult to get an overall perspective of the fire location to a particular street by using mapquest type maps. Can someone please develop a map soon? Thanks

I'd love to see some maps also as I am not familiar with streets even though my son has lived there for 20 years. When visiting, he drives so I am not sure. He lives on Via Regina. Can anyone give me details of how close the fire is to him. His phone is out due to electric outage. I know his wife has left but he stayedbehind. I am very concerned.

Can you clarify the exact areas of the 1700 homes that have been evacuated in Goleta, CA? Are they all above Cathedral Oaks?

A map of the fire would be nice, I'm going to Solvang and I want to know what roads are closed.

so far no roads to solvang are closed. maybe the pass (hwy 154 or san marcus pass) but the 101 is open.

I have spent several hours today looking for a good map site and finally found two.
First of all go to Google.com and enter County of Santa Barbara ( www.countyofsb.org ) In the center of the page click on July 4-6:00 p.m. Map of the Evacuation Area and Evacuation Order Areas (in purple print) It may open up very slowly in Adobe Acrobat. If you know how you can save it to My Pictures in My Documents to open up more quickly later and/or save it to desktop. This is a very useful site as it shows the perimeter of the fire and the actual Mandatory Evacuation Areas(coded in brown) and Evacuation Warning Areas (coded in purple). The fire perimeter was dated July 3, but the Evacuation Areas were more updated.
Another interesting but more challenging site is the GeoMac Wildfire Mapping Site. Enter www.geomac.com and wait patiently. In the upper right hand corner you will see a tab called
Jump to Wildfire, scroll down to Gap, Ca.
Next in the right hand column select Current Fire Perimeters, then click on Zoom In at the bottom of the page. Next keep clicking on the map where it says Gap until the street names appear that you are looking for. The grid pattern indicates the location of the fire. Unfortunately it may not be updated to the current time but it does give a perspective to everyone's situation. Hope this helps everyone.
