As wildfires are beginning to pop up in Ventura County, fire season is in full force in the Ojai Valley. Brush and grass fires have burned in Upper Ojai and Matilija Canyon. Although quickly contained by local fire crews from the Ventura County Fire Department and the U.S. Forest Service, the small fires that burned less than an acre could have easily spread under windy conditions. The VCFD said the fuel moisture content of local vegetation has dropped to extreme levels. The brush is drying up and is in prime condition to spread a wildfire.
