Fueled by winds, low humidity and high temperatures, the Guiberson Fire has quickly moved through 1,500 acres in and around the hills between Fillmore and Moorpark in eastern Ventura County.

The blaze was first reported at 10:33 a.m. this morning and has prompted various evacuations and road closures (the latest are listed below). At least 200 homes were under mandatory evacuation orders with a center set up at the Goebel Senior Center in Thousand Oaks for those affected. Large animals can be moved to the Ventura County Fairgrounds and Ventura County Animal Shelter.
