Burned out in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara and Montecito residents who lost their homes in last week's wildfire include actor Christopher Lloyd and retired Los Angeles Times Senior Editor Noel Greenwood, who oversaw the coverage of some big past fires. Santa Barbara News-Press co-publisher Arthur von Wiesenberger — or Nipper, as they call him on State Street — is also reported to have lost a home he owns.
