Active backing fire with short runs when in alignment with topography and wind have hampered
containment efforts. The fire continues to threaten structures in various parts of the cities of Ventura, Ojai, Casitas Springs, Santa Paula, Carpinteria, Fillmore and the unincorporated areas of Ventura County and Matilija Canyon. The fire is expected to spread towards Santa Barbara County, Sespe Wilderness and the Sespe Condor Sanctuary. Although a Red Flag Warning will remain in effect for the area, for today the NE winds will diminish in the afternoon hours with week onshore flow developing. Firefighters continue to work aggressively to protect life and property while working on control efforts around the fire perimeter.SCHOOL CLOSURES:For the most current district and school closures, please visitVentura County Office of Education.For the most current college closures,click here12/9/17 AM - See the latestIncident Updatefor more information on this fire.12/9/17 7:30 PM - Ojai Community Meeting
