Southern California Fire Forces New Evacuations, Threatens Coastal Communities

A firefighter douses flames around a house that was saved while the property around it burned as winds picked up and pushed the fire west Saturday in Montecito, Calif.

The Thomas Fire has raged for nearly two weeks and on Saturday, new evacuation orders were issued in Santa Barbara County. A local zoo was preparing to move some of its animals out of the danger zone.
