Fourth Small Brushfire In Less Than A Week Occurs In Ventura Riverbed Area

Posted on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 5:21pm

Ventura firefighters dealt with their fourth brushfire in less than a week near the 101 Freeway-Highway 33 interchange today.

The small fire put up a lot of smoke at around 1 p.m., but was quickly contained at less than an acre.

It’s the fourth small brushfire in the area since Sunday.

Fire investigators aren’t saying what led to the blazes, or if any of them are related, but they occurred in an area of the Ventura riverbed where transients have numerous campsites.
