Residents were returning to their Goleta neighborhoods Saturday morning after fleeing from their homes Friday night.

The Holiday Fire has burned an estimated 20 structures, at least half of them believed to be homes. 

One man, who moved to the area just two weeks ago, spoke to KSBY News about the moments leading up to his family evacuating and what he returned to find.
