City, county and state fire crews were still working into the early afternoon on Thursday to extinguish a brush fire of undetermined origin that broke out around 11 a.m. near Grant Park in Ventura.

As of noon, said Ventura City Fire Department spokesman Glenn Albright, the fire had destroyed eight to 10 acres and left one city firefighter suffering from heat exhaustion.

Albright said the blaze was burning up the hillside into Grant Park and a nearby pistol firing range, on the east side of the Ventura Avenue valley, towards the intersection of Kellogg and Cedar streets. Only one structure near the firing range was in danger, he added.

In total, 14 engine companies, three hand crews, one water tender, two helicopters and two bulldozers were on the site.
