     Ventura County firefighters say a workshop/outbuilding near west Ventura was destroyed by fire Saturday night.

    When firefighters arrived on the scene at 234 Canada Larga Road east of the 33 Freeway Saturday night they found what was initially described as an abandoned barn engulfed in flames.

    They immediately went into a defensive mode which means fighting the fire only from outside the structure on focus on making sure it did not spread beyond the building on fire.

    When they knocked down the fire, they found about half of the 20X30 foot building, described as a workshop/outbuilding, was destroyed by the flames and the structure itself was considered unstable.

    There were no reports of injuries.

    The cause of the fire was under investigtation.
