Fire burns in Ventura County; no homes threatened

Posted: Updated:

MOORPARK, Calif. (AP) - A fire is burning north of Moorpark in Ventura County, and dozens of firefighters are being called to the scene.

Ventura County fire spokesman Bill Nash said Tuesday no homes are threatened but the fire is moving fast. He was not sure how the fire started or how many acres have burned.

The National Weather Service says Santa Anas with gusts between 30 mph and 40 mph have developed across the region's mountains.

They are expected to decrease in the afternoon and return Wednesday morning.
