CI campus closed due to fire

CAMARILLO, Calif. - Cal State University students were ordered to evacuate as a fire came dangerously close to dorms and professor housing.

Faculty members said they heard the evacuation orders over the intercom around 10:30 a.m.

The campus has more than one exit, but both roads were jammed.

High school students on a field trip had their tour cut short. They boarded a bus and headed home.  Before leaving one boy called it a memorable trip.

No word when students will be allowed back on campus.

The fire is still burning between Camarillo and Malibu.

It is being pushed by strong winds.
