An Ojai home was destroyed by fire Monday, along with nearly 2 acres of brush in the 1600 block of Foothill Road. Firefighters were still checking for hot spots Tuesday and assisting the family with the few items that could be salvaged from the ruin.
Report of the fire was received by the Ventura County Fire Department (VCFD) at 5:40 p.m. Monday, according to Capt. Mike Lindbery, information officer for VCFD. “We got the call as a brush or structure-into-brush fire and responded accordingly,” he said.
