Brush Fire In Eastern Ventura County 80% Contained

Posted on Thursday, December 26, 2013 10:02am

Ventura County firefighters say a brush fire which started late last night in the eastern part of the county is now 80% contained.

The fire started just after 10:30 last night near Box Canyon.  With gusty wind conditions in the area at the time causing concern, firefighters were able to stop the spread of the approximately 10 acre blaze before it could threaten homes.

While the wind eased this morning, firefighters are hoping to fully contain, and control the blaze soon, before winds potentially return to the  area.
