Jesusita Fire: Community Meeting Thursday

Local, state and federal fire officials will answer public's questions about fire's origin and status

Officials from the Cal Fire Incident Management Team and Unified Command will host a Jesusita Fire community meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at La Cumbre Junior High School, 2255 Modoc Road.

State, federal and local fire and law enforcement officials will be on hand to offer the public first-hand information about the Jesusita Fire, which started Tuesday, May 5. The presentation will include a question and answer session.

This meeting is a fire incident meeting only; future meetings that focus on recovery will take place separately, officials said.

Representatives from the American Red Cross, Direct Relief International and the Fire Safe Council will staff information tables about what roles their respective organizations took during the fire.

The meeting will be recorded live-to-tape for rebroadcast on both the government cable television channels for both the County (Channel 20) and the City (Channel 18) of Santa Barbara.

City TV will re-play the meeting on the following dates:

» 11 p.m. Thursday;

» 9 p.m. Friday;

» 9 p.m. Saturday

» at noon on Sunday, and;

» at 8 p.m on Monday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
