It was a monster fire affecting over 11,000 hectares of vegetation in the county of Ventura, California, with flames reaching incredible heights heading towards Santa Monica near Los Angeles.

The intervention by about 2000 fire fighters was impressive. They used every means at their disposal, apparently even including bulldozers assisted by helicopters and planes. 75% of the fire has been brought under control and the situation now appears to be returning to normal after recent winds had made intervention by the ground crews difficult.
