Fire Near Westlake High

Several Westlake Village homes were evacuated Thursday afternoon after a brush fire burned 24 acres north of Westlake high school.

The fire in the 500 block of Country Valley Road, drew about 5 firefighters. By about 5:15 p.m., crews appeared to have a handle on the fire.

Dubbed the "Country Fire," crews arrived on scene in Thousand Oaks to report smoke emerging from the blaze in an area that was difficult to access. Fire helicopters and several air tankers from Los Angeles County were requested to respond to the blaze.
