(LOS ANGELES) — Southern California firefighters are working on a brush fire that was spread by winds Christmas night.

Fire officials said the fire is about 10 acres in size and 20 percent contained.

No homes are in immediate danger, but Capt. Jeff Shea with Ventura County Fire said he’s concerned the fire could spread. “Our biggest concern right now is the wind and the potential,” he said.

There’s word 300 firefighters are battling the blaze.

“We’re going to be in the area all day, mopping up hot spots,” Shea said. “The suppression efforts will continue.”
