Firefighters Contain 25 Acre Blaze In Ventura County

Posted on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 3:52pm


Ventura County firefighters contained a 25 acre brushfire burning in the hills southwest of Camarillo.

The fire was discovered at around 12:30 Tuesday afternoon near the intersection of Pancho, and Howard Roads. No structures were threatened but because the terrain is so rugged, hand crews, and a helicopter were used to fight the fire.

Teams will be on the scene mopping up overnight. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
