Fire burns near Ojai

IN THIS ARTICLE

Firefighters in Ventura County had a blaze off Highway 33 near Ojai 75 percent contained late in the evening July 21, according to the Ventura County Star.
 

The fire started that afternoon and scorched more than 30 acres by 7 p.m. It was burning in a rugged, hard-to-reach area with several oil fields nearby.

At press time, no structures were reported threatened, but the Star said the fire had put up a large plume of smoke and was being fanned by an ocean breeze that could make it spread.
The newspaper said fire officials are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze and are investigating whether a power line sparked it.
