Naval Base Wildfire Not Near CU Branches
OXNARD, Calif. (5/6/12)--A credit union with six branches on or near the Naval Base Ventura County, Calif., said the branches are not located near wildfires that spread onto the naval installation's boundaries Friday.

Two wildfires had encroached the base, sending buildings and vehicles in flames as 900 firefighters fought the blaze. Its origin is being investigated. Thousands of residents along Pacific Coast Highway 101 fled the area when the fire jumped the roadway Friday morning (USAToday.com May 3). The fires had closed 10 miles of the highway as of Friday afternoon.

CBC FCU, based in Oxnard, has branches in Camarillo, Oxnard, Thousand Oaks,  and on the naval base at Port Hueneme and Point Magu.  Thousand Oaks has two branches. "None of our branches are near the fires," a spokeswoman told News Now.

The two encroachments occurred at Point Magu and near the Thousand Oaks and Camarillo Springs communities. By Friday afternoon the base announced mandatory evacuation of some residents on the base due to smoke.
