The Thomas Fire is currently at 115,000 Acres with 5% Containment

The fire continues to burn actively with long range spotting when pushed by winds. Extreme fire danger will persist as long as gusty Santa Ana winds combined with the very low relative humidity. The fire is established on the north and east side of Hwy 150 and is also burning on the west side of Hwy 33. The fire has been burning along the 101 freeway to the Santa Barbara County line as well as west of the City of Fillmore. Firefighters continue to work aggressively to protect life and property while working on control efforts around the fire perimeter. Please use caution when driving through fire areas and be aware of Firefighters and Law Enforcement personnel working.

Casitas Municipal Water District has issued a boil water order for the Upper Ojai Valley, Casitas Springs Foster Park and parts of the City of Ventura due to loss of pressure and water supply from the fire related power outages. All tap water used for drinking and cooking should be boiled to a rolling boil for approximately 1 minute. This is the preferred method to ensure water is safe to drink. Please check the City of Ventura's website http://www.cityofventura.ca.gov/ to see if your area is affected.

The city of Ventura Police Department has declared a curfew in response to the fire. Effective December 5, 2017 a curfew is in effect starting at 10pm and ending at 5am daily.

The County of Ventura, City of Santa Paula, City of Ojai and City of Ventura have all proclaimed a local emergency.
