A group of spring breakers held a bonfire at Carpinteria City Beach late Tuesday night, leaving behind a couch, bottles, broken glass and other miscellaneous trash. Pedro Castro, a longtime employee of the city for 27 years, was left to clean up the aftermath early Wednesday morning after finding Third Beach littered with trash. Parks and Recreation director Matt Roberts reminded the community that fires on the beach are illegal, saying, “Fires are filthy and dangerous. These folks obviously had no concern about selfishly leaving litter and the beach a mess.”
