VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. — While many in the Ventura County area recover from a mass shooting that took the life of 12 people and the alleged gunman, a fast-moving brush fire is now impacting residents and causing evacuations.

The fire has forced many near Thousand Oaks, California, the town where Wednesday’s mass shooting occurred, to evacuate and escape deadly flames, according to county officials.

The brush fire was ignited in the area of Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa Valley.

Ventura County Schools and California State University Channels Island closed because of the fire, according to county officials.
