    Ventura City and County fire units responded to a reported vegetation fire near the River Haven encampment area adjacent to the Santa Clara River and Olivas Park golf course. Units arrived to find a growing wind driven fire in thick vegetation next to the encampment. Aggressive work by firefighters was able to halt the fire and keep it from significant growth and threat to nearby developed areas. The fire was contained and fully extinguished in approximately 2 hours. The cause was determined to be from an unattended cooking/warming fire. No responsible party was identified, and no significant injuries were reported. Several firefighters did suffer exposure to burning poison oak and self-treated including decontamination of safety clothing and equipment immediately after the fire.
