Ventura County firefighters are hoping to fully contain a more than 60 acre blaze outside of Fillmore today.
The fire began just after 3:30 p.m. yesterday, in the hills about a mile east of the city. No homes were threatened, but some staff members at a nature sanctuary were evacuated.
Helicopters, and air tankers helped more than 75 firefighters stop the spread of the blaze before sunset yesterday. There’s no word yet on the cause of the fire.
