All right -- you're rejecting my edits. Fine. Here I'm a lowly newbie, while I'm an administrator on en:. But let me point out that the picture is of last November's Tea Fire; the map shows the ENTIRE northeast part of Santa Barbara County is evacuated, rather than just part of the City of Santa Barbara -- the scale is off by MORE than an order of magnitude; the current stats are 30,000 people evacuated, more than 75 homes lost, and it has burned about 3,500 acres. It's really worthwhile to get this stuff right. ANY current source gives this stuff. Here is just one. Thanks, Antandrus (talk) 00:01, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Please don't think we're rejecting your edits. I see I was the person who removed your additions, and looking over it now, I'm not sure why I did that. I guess I noticed that the square mile figure was changed, and the new source provided didn't mention that number, so I removed it, assuming the new number to be inaccurate. Please feel free to readd the information if you want. Cheers, Tempodivalse [talk] 00:15, 9 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]
