Mulch fire in Camarillo
CAMARILLO, Calif. -

Ventura County firefighters got called to a mulch fire in Camarillo.

Firefighters say the half acre fire started off Aviation Road Thursday afternoon.

They are not sure how it started, but spontaneous combustion might be to blame.

In addition to putting water on the pile, they are using bulldozers to flatten the pile.
