Here is South Carolina, residents of Myrtle Beach recently survived one of the worst fires in the state's history. We send our sympathies to those in Santa Barbara.
Towering Palm Trees explode as flames jump across state highway 154 early Friday morning May 8, 2009, in Santa Barbara, Calif. , bringing the fire dangerously close to heavily populated areas. A wildfire raging along coastal mountain slopes burned more homes Friday as it expanded in two directions along a five-mile front, and mandatory evacuation orders grew to encompass some 30,500 people, authorities said. Thousands more were urged to be ready to move on a moment's notice.
