California State University, Channel Islands, remains closed because of wildfire

California State University, Channel Islands, will remain closed Friday, a day after the campus was evacuated because of a spreading wildfire. The Ventura County Star says students who live on campus were not allowed back Thursday night and all student housing remained closed. When the campus was evacuated, officials were concerned mostly about smoke from the nearby fire. Subsequently, 20-foot flames had spread to the campus, leaving hills and newly planted landscaping charred, but no buildings burned.
