Wildfire Near Casitas Out

SEE VIDEO Ventura County fire crews worked to contain a brushfire that broke out Sunday near Lake Casitas, when, at about 11:50 a.m., a motorcycle crashed into the hillside and apparently set it on fire. Fire crews battled the westside blaze to complete containment that afternoon. Chad Shoemaker, 38, of Oxnard, was transported to a local hospital with a dislocated shoulder and cuts and bruises, according to CHP Officer Steve Reid. He was wearing a helmet when he lost control of his 1989 Harley Davidson.
