Campfire Group Won't Be Charged For Montecito Wildfire

Posted: Updated:

Ten people who lit a Montecito campfire last fall will not be charged with igniting a wildfire that destroyed more than 200 homes.

The November 13th wildfire burned more than 65 square miles in Santa Barbara County.

Prosecutors announced Friday that an investigation could not prove beyond reasonable doubt that the campfire sparked the wildfire.

The group will be charged with misdemeanor trespassing.
