Firefighters Making Progress With Two Brush Fires In Ventura County; No Homes Threatened
Firefighters are close to full containment of one brush fire in Ventura County, and are making progress with a second.
The Elizabeth Fire has burned about 275 acres of brush in the hills between Ventura, and Santa Paula. Containment is now up to 90%. No homes have been threatened. There’s no word yet on what started the fire, which began Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile, firefighters are also dealing with a second major blaze in the county. The Lime Fire started Wednesday afternoon near Like Piru, forcing the evacuation of its campground. The blaze stands at 898 acres burned, with 20% containment.
The fire actually hasn’t grown much, but firefighters were able to do a more complete job of mapping its perimeter.
