VENTURA, Calif. - Ventura County firefighters responded to a brush fire that broke out near the Ventura Harbor Friday afternoon.
The fire sprang up around 1 p.m. on the 3700 block of Harbor Boulevard near the Santa Clara River bridge.
A County Fire helicopter responded to assist with the fire.
Firefighters are describing the burn as small in size, however, due to dense brush the fire is putting out a lot of smoke.
Residents from Oxnard, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Camarillo and Ventura may see or smell the smoke throughout the afternoon.
