I believe the Santa Ynez Cam is now pointed at this Fire. http://www.alertwildfire.org/centralcoast/index.html

Edit: This camera is now smoked out and not showing much as of 1600.

These winds are forecasted to last for the next 3 or 4 hours. With that, it could easily reach the 154 and potentially cross in the area of Los Olivos. That’s a hard push, but plausible with these conditions. There are also quite a few ranches and homes scattered throughout its path.

Tanker 163 is the 4th tanker, from the original augmented dispatch.
I have only heard 6 be ordered so far, but wouldn’t doubt the order for 10.
All additional tankers will be coming from quite a way, or on a divert from the INF incident.
