The Thomas Fire Part 2 continues from part 1 beginning with day 4 through day 13. The fire grows to be the largest wildland fire in California history. Sadly one firefighter fatality occurs in the Fillmore area and the procession carrying him from the burn site is covered. After this occurrence the forest is closed to anyone except necessary personnel. Day 13 is filmed in Montecito and Santa Barbara as the fire pushed by high winds comes down the mountains into the cities. No homes were destroyed on that day due to excellent work by numerous strike teams of firefighters from throughout the western states.
