Ventura County firefighters say they are getting the upper hand on a roughly 50 acre brushfire which has been burning since early this morning in a remote area outside of Moorpark.
The fire was reported just after 2 a.m., north of the 118 Freeway between Moorpark College, and the Rustic Canyon Golf Course.
No structures have been damaged, and none are currently considered to be threatened.
With the sun up, firefighters are using helicopters to battle the blaze. They say because they were fighting the fire in the dark, they’re also hoping to get a more accurate idea of the acreage actually burned.
