Due to the fire’s proximity to the Coast Line, Amtrak has suspended or reduced all Pacific Surfliner service north of Oxnard since Dec. 7. On Wednesday evening, Amtrak officials said it was unclear when the route would reopen. “We will resume regular service north of Oxnard as soon as it is safe to do so for both passengers and Amtrak staff,” officials says.
Dry weather and stiff winds have fanned the flames through what is traditionally the state’s rainy season.
