8-10,000 acre fast-moving brush fire breaks out in Camarillo

CAMARILLO, Calif.- - Evacuations are being ordered as strong Santa Ana winds fan a Southern California wildfire a few miles from the site of the mass shooting in the city of Thousand Oaks.
The fire erupted Thursday afternoon and the Ventura County Fire Department quickly ordered evacuations of the community of Camarillo Springs and a trailer park as the fire jumped U.S. 101.
The major artery has been shut down and cars and trucks are trying to turn around to get away from the flames.
