A wildfire spurred by strong winds has mushroomed in size as it burned brush north of Santa Barbara, forcing the evacuations of hundreds of campers, some homes, and a refinery as it crept toward the ocean.

The Scherpa Fire broke out about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in Los Padres National Forest and by around midnight it had expanded to 1,400 acres or nearly 2 square miles, Santa Barbara County fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said.
