Having burned an estimated 8,733 acres, theJesusita Fire in the Los Padres National Forest north of Santa Barbara, California, was about 95 percent contained on 15 May 2009. This natural-color image from the Advanced Land Imager on NASAs Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite shows the burned area on 13 May 2009. The marine clouds that hid the city from view during a previous overpass had cleared by this time, and the encroachment of the blaze into the outskirts of the Santa Barbara is obvious.
