Oxnard Fire Department responded to a civilian call just before 11:30 on January 10th for a reported fire at the terminal at Oxnard Airport. Upon arrival, firefighters were able to extinguish the fire before major structural damage occurred. Security cameras inside the terminal show that the fire was a result of a computer monitor malfunction. The civilian who reported the fire was on site to pick up a shuttle and noticed smoke from inside the terminal. That individual’s emergency call likely saved the terminal from much more extensive damage.
Rental car service out of the Oxnard Airport terminal will be temporarily interrupted. No other airport operations have been affected.
