As of 7:52PM tonight, the Ventura County Fire Department noted that the Springs Fire that originated in Camarillo Springs this morning is now 8,000 acres and 10% contained. 2,000 homes have been threatened, 15 sustained damage and none were destroyed (which is incredible if you've been watching this on the news). 925 personnel are now committed to the fire. Additional information, including road closures and mandatory evacuations are at fire.countyofventura.org. Scenes tonight from Newbury Park, looking towards Sycamore Canyon are below. The smoke plume was dwarfing Boney Mountain.
Dos Vientos is war torn and tattered, but hanging in there as the sun sets.
