Wildfire engulfs Ventura County

A 6,500 acre fire is moving ever closer to homes in Ventura County, forcing residents to flee the region as more than 500 firefighters try to stop the spread of the flames. The Pacific Coast Highway has just been shut down in both directors amid efforts to contain the blaze.

The Red Cross has set up evacuation centers at the Thousand Oaks Community Park, 2525 N. Moorpark Road, and Camarillo’s Calvary Community Chapel, 380 Mobil Ave.
