Santa Ana winds feed wildfires

Powerful Santa Ana winds are fanning the flames in Ventura County.
Firefighters are struggling to contain a fast-moving wildfire in Ventura County.

It's burning in Camarillo, about 50 miles west of Los Angeles. 

Powerful winds are fanning the flames, which has now grown to 10,000 acres with only 10% containment. 

The winds are so high, planes used to fight the fires were grounded for much of the day on Thursday, as the flames pushed toward neighborhoods.

The Ventura County fire is just one of several blazes burning in the state. 

Brush fires are also a big problem in Kern County. 

Firefighters say now is the time to set up and practice a fire escape plan.
