SANTA BARBARA, CA - MAY 09: A woman walks a dog on Butterfly Beach under clouds and fog as cooler humid weather gives firefighters a break at the nearby Jesusita fire, on May 9, 2009 in Montecito, just south of Santa Barbara, California. Many of the 30,500 residents who were forced to evacuate as the 8,700-acre fire wildfire destroyed about 80 homes are being allowed to go home today. A slight drizzle and milder winds gave firefighters their first significant gain, increasing containment from 10 percent to 30 percent overnight.(credit: David McNew/Getty Images)
