Damage assessment teams are discovering more homes that have been damaged or in some cases, entirely destroyed by the Thomas Fire. 

KSBY news reporter Jessica Vo was with fire officials Sunday morning in the Montecito area where a few homes suffered fire damage on Park Hill Lane near San Ysidro Ranch.

The homeowners have already been notified by fire officials about the damage to their residences. 

Fire officials say the fire roared through the San Ysidro Ranch area early Saturday morning, propelled by strong Santa Ana winds. 

The exact number of effected homes is unclear at this time. 

While a few home were damaged, firefighters were able to protect and defend hundreds of homes in that same area.

We have KSBY news crews on scene in the Park Lane area speaking to officials now.

We will update this story as soon as we have more information. 

Approximately 1,020 structures have been destroyed in the Thomas Fire since it began on December 4. 

Mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect for much of Southern Santa Barbara County. 

Evacuees are urged not to return home until the evacuation orders have been lifted by authorities.
