The massive fire that is burning in Ventura county has spread to more than 250,000 acres in a week. After a week of the still burning fire crews only have 20% of it contained, and they are fearing they fire may spread because of strong Santa Ana winds overnight.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
