New evacuation ordered for Springs wildfire

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters battling a huge Southern California wildfire have ordered new evacuations in a neighborhood overlooking canyons where flames are surging.

The Ventura County Fire Department called Friday for residents to immediately leave homes along a two-mile length of Potrero Road on the southern edge of city of Thousand Oaks.

The fire broke out Thursday morning in neighboring Camarillo and strong Santa Ana winds pushed it about 10 miles to the Pacific. Those offshore winds have faded and the return of onshore winds has sent flames back up wilderness canyons toward neighborhoods.

Some homes were damaged Thursday but no homes have been lost.
