The flames even temporarily trapped children in a summer camp, officials said. Mandatory orders were issued for people living along Blazing Saddles Road and White Rock Lane, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire public information officer.

"The Whittier Fire, which is burning in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County, is especially concerning for firefighters because it's near hundreds of homes", reports Debra Greene from member station KCLU.

In Northern California, the Wall fire in Butte County had burned 4,400 acres, destroyed 10 structures and injured four people since starting on Friday.

The fire that started this weekend in California's Santa Barbara County was "completely out of control", county fire Captain Dave Zaniboni said.

A driver was found dead in his vehicle after going over the side of Highway 166 and landing in a river bottom early Friday, according to County Fire officials.

As of 7 a.m. Sunday morning the fire is 5-percent contained. Gusts up to 50 miles per hour (80 kph) could last through Saturday morning and possibly into Sunday, forecasters said.

In Colorado, residents of almost 500 homes outside the ski town of Breckenridge were allowed to return home on Friday night.

A wildfire in Santa Barbara County exploded to almost 30 square miles Saturday.
