Massive Brush Fire Fighting Drill Underway Near Ventura-Los Angeles County Line

Posted on Thursday, June 6, 2013 10:17am

It looks like firefighters are battling a brushfire near the Ventura-Los Angeles County line, but, it’s actually a large scale drill.

Ventura and Los Angeles County firefighters are working at the county line in Simi Valley, just off the 118 Freeway at Hummingbird Ranch.

There’s more than a dozen fire trucks, hand crews, and two helicopters, so there is a lot of activity visible in the area.

It’s part of an effort to improve communications when firefighters are battling a blaze which straddles two jurisdictions.
