Firefighters now say they hope to have the massive Springs Brush fire in Ventura County fully contained on Tuesday.
The fire is now 80% contained. A mild storm system which moved into the region over the weekend helped lower temperatures, and raise the humidity, even though rainfall amounts were light.
Cal State Channel Islands reopened Sunday, with the fire threat passing for the campus.
The County Fire Department’s command staff began releasing some of the 1800 plus firefighters working the blaze, although a substantial number of people are still involved in mopup efforts.
