Scenes from ongoing wildfires in Southern California

The blaze near Ventura County that started on Thursday is still not fully contained, with 60% of it under control after days of effort from fire fighters and rescue officials. Seven personnel and one civilian have suffered minor injuries, but despite the widespread blaze, not a single home has been destroyed.

With more than 1,800 fire-fighting personnel deployed, and the price of the battle rocketing beyond $4.5 million, officials are confident that the blaze will be full contained at some point today.
