Firefighters in Ventura County have a brush fire in the Conejo Grade near the 101 Freeway fully contained.
Ventura Fire spokesman Tom Kruschke said the fire did not threaten nearby homes, but it did creat a traffic nightmare along the 101 Freeway.
More than 75 firefighters were on the scene, along with two air tankers. Earlier, Kruschke had said crews were concerned that the steep terrain and high temperatures might slow containment.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
