Multimillion-Dollar Homes In The Montecito Area Reduced To Ashes By The Thomas Fire

By Sunday morning, a multimillion-dollar house on the top of Park Hill Lane in Montecito was still smoldering and on fire.
All that stood were cement blocks that outlined the frame of the house — once yellow, it had been turned black by the fire. Chunks of glass and brick from the house came tumbling down as firefighters made their way up the street. Although an epic firefight Saturday was largely a success, preventing the mammoth Thomas fire from sweeping into whole neighborhoods in Montecito and Santa Barbara, some expensive homes were lost in this affluent coastal community known for its celebrity residents.
