Misty Volaski, Ojai Valley News editor
The Chorro Fire, burning north of Ojai near the Chorro Grande Trailhead on Highway 33, has been burning since Sunday and had grown to about 282 acres Tuesday afternoon. Officials put containment at about 75 percent.
The fire closed Highway 33 from Wheeler Gorge to Lockwood Valley, and also closed the Chorro Grande Trailhead and Reyes Campground. After being closed for two days, Highway 33 reopened Tuesday morning. The campgrounds and trailhead are still closed. No structures have been threatened.
