A brush fire in Piru burned about a halfacre Monday. Ventura County Fire Department crews knocked it down within a halfhour with the aid of a helicopter, hand crew, and water tender, along with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The blaze broke out at noon just off Highway 126 and Camino Del Rio, in the Santa Clara River bottom, near the Los Angeles County line. Heavy brush was consumed; no surrounding crops were affected.
