Wildfires near Thousand Oaks, California put 75000 homes under evacuation orders

Wildfires near Thousand Oaks, California put 75000 homes under evacuation orders

About two-thirds of the city of Malibu was ordered evacuated early Friday as a ferocious wildfire roared toward the beachside community that is home to about 13,000 residents, some of them Hollywood celebrities.

Another blaze just west of that area, dubbed the Hill Fire, topped 10,000 acres on Thursday. "All residents, from Ventura County Line to the area of the Getty Villa and the Ventura (101) Freeway to the ocean, must evacuate as soon as possible". That includes areas of Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Westlake Village, all in L.A. County.

NWS said wind guests of 50 to 70mph were expected to lash the mountains in Ventura County.

Meanwhile, a 750 acre plus fire called the Woolsey Fire is burning near the site of the old Santa Susana Field Lab, outside of Simi Valley. (Ringo H.W. Chiu/AP) The Woolsey Fire is seen looking towards the west valley area on November 9, 2018 in Porter Ranch, California.

It was 0 percent contained and the cause was under investigation. The Calabasas campus is also evacuated.

Near Oak Park, the town of Thousand Oaks - still reeling from a mass shooting on Wednesday night - has also been threatened by the encroaching blaze.

As of Thursday evening, it was burning above Cal State University Channel Islands, in the footprint of the 2013 Springs Fire which burned 24,000 acres. Gaddie explained how his team was able to evacuate Paradise city residents in a short amount of time.

In turn, Mr Ratelband sued them, bringing the case to a court in the city of Arnhmen, in the eastern Dutch province of Gelderland. He says that with his youthful face and an age of 49, he would get more dates, possibly with younger women.

Approximately 75,000 homes are under evacuation orders in Ventura and Los Angeles counties Friday morning.

The Sheriff/Fire Air Support Unit deployed Copter 208 to do nighttime water drops on the fire.

That fire has devastated the town of Paradise, where officials say almost every structure has been razed by out-of-control flames and five people were found dead in burned out vehicles early Friday afternoon. Evacuations in Hidden Hills and all portions in the City of Los Angeles, have been revised from mandatory to voluntary.

Authorities fear the fire, fueled by strong winds, could reach Chico - a city of 90,000 people where many Butte County families already have evacuated to shelters.

The brush fire was first reported around 6:30 AM Thursday morning and burned roughly 18,000 acres by midday Thursday.

Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said Paradise is no longer standing.

Evacuation center locations, road closure and school closure information for the fires can be found on the Ventura County emergency page here and through the county hotline at 805.465.6650.
