Firefighters from Calfire, Ventura and Santa Barbara County fire departments battle the western edge of the Sherpa Fire on June 16.

The massive brush fire broke out two days before, during the afternoon of June 14. So far, the fire has burned more than 4,000 acres, forcing the temporary closure of parts of Highway 101 on the South Coast on two occasions, according to Dave Zaniboni, a spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Even though the fire broke out on the Scherpa Ranch, officials are calling it the "Sherpa" fire.
