Ranches, homes under threat as wildfire rages in southern California

TRT World says a wildfire raging through southern California coastal mountains is threatening ranches and rural homes and keeping a major highway shut down, as the fire-scarred state faced a new round of dry winds that raise the risk of flames.

The Alisal Fire covered more than 57 sq km in the Santa Ynez Mountains west of Santa Barbara, and the number of firefighters was nearly doubled to 1,300, with more on the way. 

Containment remained at 5 per cent.

While the scenic region along the Pacific shoreline is lightly populated, the blaze was a threat to more than 100 homes, ranches, and other buildings, fire officials said on Wednesday.
