Fire Fighters put out Blaze

Ventura County firefighters put out a fire Monday in the hood system of a Camarillo fast-food restaurant, officials said.

The incident was reported about 7:10 a.m. at the Burger King near Arneill Road and East Daily Drive, according to the Fire Department. The fire was put out at 7:50 a.m. officials said.

A fire prevention officer was on his way to work on Highway 101 when he saw light smoke coming from the restaurant and reported it, Division Chief Bryan Vanden Bossche said. About 30 fire personnel responded to the blaze, along with building, safety and county health officials.

Six to eight people were in the restaurant when it was evacuated, and no one was injured, Vanden Bossche said.

The fire appeared to have started in the hood vent system, but the cause is under investigation.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office helped with traffic control, but no streets were blocked off, Vanden Bossche said.
