An iconic cross at Ventura park is still standing tall despite the Thomas Fire ravaging the area. The Serra Cross, which has stood on the site since World War II, is well known to the local community and has been the backdrop for thousands of weddings. Rumors of the cross burning down flooded social media on Tuesday. The rumors were easy to believe, since power lines and everything else around the cross at Grant Park were destroyed.
From the Los Angeles Times:
The return of powerful winds Thursday pushed the destructive Ventura County fire closer to several communities, prompting new evacuations.
Communities both on the coast and inland were under threat. At 4 a.m., officials closed the 101 Freeway between Routes 126 and 150. According to the California Highway Patrol, that left no open routes between Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. The freeway was reopened around 7 a.m.
