Surfers enter the water under heavy smoke from the Jesusita fire at Butterfly Beach in Montecito, just south of Santa Barbara, Calif. Firefighters are experiencing a setback as the out-of-control wildfire is making a run to the west. Santa Barbara is suffering its third major wildfire to burn homes in less than a year. Dozens of homes have been destroyed, firefighters have been injured, and thousands of households are under mandatory evacuation orders.
