Wildfire in Ventura County / Moorpark Area
A brush fire broke out today in Ventura County amid red flag warning conditions. Fire officials named it the Guiberson Fire , and it burned from near the Fillmore area down to the northern section of Moorpark where I made these photos this afternoon including some ranch hands at an avocado ranch trying to put out the fire with tree branches, something I'd never seen before. They did a good job! The winds laid down as the afternoon progressed helping out the firefighters. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the fire started by spontaneous combustion of manure, wow.
