A brush fire outside of Fillmore has gutted at least one home, and is threatening others.
The blaze started at around 4:45, on the 1400 block of Goodenough Road. Firefighters say what apparently started as a structure fire spread to brush, and some vehicles.
More than 40 Ventura County Fire Department units are now on scene, and are having to contend with strong wind, in the 30-35 mile an hour range.
Firefighters are using helicopters to battle the blaze. There’s no word on evacuations.
