Fire’s impact points North Coast toward longer view

Here on San Luis Obispo’s North Coast, we’re calling it “the summer of smoke.” First, a huge monster dubbed the Soberanes Fire swallowed acres by the thousands down the backbone of the Big Sur/Ventana Wilderness. It began mid-July and it’s still active at the end of September, turning North County skies a muddy blue-gray. At 70 days, it’s the longest-burning blaze Los Padres National Forest history, blackening more than 126,000 acres. Heroic work by firefighting personnel and local residents has finally wrestled it to 76 percent containment.
