The "Cave Fire" burns a hillside near homes in Santa Barbara, California, early on November 26, 2019.

By

Last November, a series of destructive wildfires burned through Southern California, causing deaths, evacuations, destruction of homes, and more. Now, one year later, Santa Barbara is being ravaged by a wildfire, known as the Cave Fire. Despite struggles to contain the fire, no injuries or deaths have been reported, and no homes have been destroyed.

According to a press release shared by Santa Barbara County, a brush fire started in the Santa Ynez Mountains on Monday afternoon at about 4:15 p.m. It's unclear exactly what started the fire. By 9 p.m., the Cave Fire had burned approximately 3,000 acres of land, with 0 percent containment. At 10:30 p.m. Monday night, authorities declared an emergency.
