SB Fire Update - Grim

The winds have dramatically blown up the fire since late afternoon.  The Mandatory Evacuations have doubled.  The Evacuation Warning area has been extended. 


Four vet hospitals are now in Evacuation Warning areas: 

Cat & Bird Clinic (805) 569-2287 101 W Mission St, Santa Barbara, CA

Slaton, Daniel DVM - San Roque Pet Hospital (805) 682-2647 3034 State St, #B, Santa Barbara, CA

Adobe Animal Hospital (805) 682-2555 3230 State St, #A, Santa Barbara, CA

Siemon, Leslie A DVM - Cat Doctors (805) 899-2944 1333 De La Vina St, #G, Santa Barbara, CA


I left a message at each that CVMA is available for assistance.   I have been able to confirm that Cat & Bird and San Roque have evacuated all animal patients least two  Vet Hospital, Cat and Bird Clinic has been evacuated to safe locations.


At least one evacuated veterinarian was told there is a 70% chance she will lose her home.  She didn’t have a chance to get home before the road closures.  Her cousin was able to get her cat and a few “important” things.
