Thomas Fire Burns Ventura Apartment Complex To Ground

Thomas Fire Burns Ventura Apartment Complex To Ground

The biggest and most destructive wildfire burning in Southern California has jumped U.S. Highway 101, almost reaching the ocean and forcing new evacuations. The fire officials said on Wednesday morning.

Flames from the Thompson fire were within half a mile of the Santa Barbara County line by 1 a.m. Thursday and moving fast toward the north, and areas that had been issued an evacuation warning about four hours earlier were placed under mandatory evacuation orders.

Officials hope the electronic push will keep the region alert and the death toll from the week's fires at zero.

That fire has now reached 96,000 acres, and officials fear the worst wind day so far this week in Southern California as the region battles major brushfires, scorching nearly 120,000 acres altogether.

A man was doing his best to spray down his house before he could evacuate.

If he also fails to find a quarterback, he'll meet a similar fate to Brown - and one head coach Hue Jackson could be facing soon. Since taking over the front office in 2016, Brown crafted a 1-27 record as the team remains winless through the current season.

"I don't know what I'm going to do right now, I can't think right", Roberts said.

In Ojai, residents were frantically calling county animal services for help evacuating their horses as the glow of flames approach from the west on one flank of the fire. The blaze had been creeping there already, but an increase in winds pushed it close enough for many more to flee.

Across the wide I-405 freeway from the fire, the Getty Center art complex was closed to protect its collection from smoke damage. Many schools across Los Angeles were closed because of poor air quality and classes were canceled at 265 schools Thursday. The blaze, which has destroyed at least 150 structures and threatened 12,000 others, and remained 5 percent contained, Cal Fire said. Firefighters rushed to attack the fires before winds picked up again.

Amtrak said there would be no service Thursday from Santa Barbara to Ventura. "But that's about it".
