Mandatory Evacuations Lifted In Camarillo Springs Burn Zone

All mandatory evacuations for fifty homes in three separate divisions in the Camarillo Springs Burn Area have been lifted as of 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Mandatory evacuations had been issued early Tuesday because of an imminent threat of mud flows.

Other homes in the same neighborhood are under a voluntary evacuation order.

Ventura County Fire Capt. Scott Dettore said the homes are in an area that burned in a wildfire more than a year ago.

The same neighborhood experienced flooding and mudflows from heavy rains during Halloween that left at least one house damaged.

A shelter is set up at Calvary Nexus Church of Camarillo at 380 Mobile Ave. where volunteers are providing food, water, lodging, and comfort for evacuated residents.

A rain system that swept through during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend triggered at least three separate mud and rock flows across Pacific Coast Highway, closing down a nine mile street between Yerba Buena Rd. and Las Posas Rd. that remains closed today.

Schools remain open and on a regular schedule.
