Ventura 101 Fwy Brush Fire


At 11:45 pm Wednesday night, Ventura and Oxnard City Fire crews responded to a brush fire in a wooded area in the middle of the 101 and 126 Freeway interchange. It took crews approximately 30 minutes to knock down a 100×100 foot fire that originated in a homeless encampment. The fire prompted the closure of the NB 101 to EB 126 transition. It is unknown how long the closure will be in place.
