An evacuation area for large animals was established at Pierce College, 6201 Winnetka Ave.; and at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, but the latter was filled to capacity by mid-morning.

Sheriff's officials did not provide an update on the number of residents who remained evacuated, but on Thursday about 250,000 people were under evacuation orders.
