Fire Breaks Out In Ventura County Near Thousand Oaks

Fire Breaks Out In Ventura County Near Thousand Oaks

"You pose a danger to yourself and emergency responders", Ventura County Fire Department Captain Scott Dettorre said about the drivers.

The Ventura County fire department said Friday that 75,000 homes were ordered evacuated in the two adjoining counties west of Los Angeles. The threat continues Friday morning, with millions of Californians under "red flag" warningsportending windy, arid and warm conditions that pose extreme fire risks.

The entire city of Malibu was ordered to evacuate Friday morning as well as surrounding areas south of Highway 101, the entire community of Oak Park and sections of Thousand Oaks, according to a Ventura County incident webpage.

Seven evacuation centers have been set up in response to the Woolsey Fire, with four reportedly at capacity, according to Ventura County website.

Fire officials ordered the evacuation of large swaths of the beachside city of Malibu Friday as a raging fire jumped the US 101 Freeway west of Los Angeles and raced toward the sea and the community famed for its surf and celebrity homes. "I pray everyone is safe", she wrote.

The swift-moving Camp Fire, raging about 80 miles north of Sacramento, consumed Paradise, and moved Friday morning into the eastern side of Chico, a city with a population of around 90,000.

Rescuers used a bulldozer to push abandoned cars out of the way in order to reach a hospital and evacuate patients as the fire engulfed the building, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter said.

Hidden Hills resident Adrienne Janic gave her home over to firefighters late Thursday to use as a command center.

As of 5:30 a.m. ET, the fire was 0% contained.

Just 12 minutes after it started Thursday afternoon, the flames spread across USA 101, leaving several drivers temporarily stranded.

The Woolsey Fire, broke out on Thursday, not too far from the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people enjoying country line dancing at college night before killing himself.

Residents took to social media to share their views of the flames almost consuming the hillside in Newbury Park, which borders Thousands Oaks to the west.

While no homes or businesses have been lost due to the fast-moving blaze, a number of RVs and outbuildings have been burned and a firefighter suffered a minor injury, authorities said.

Dettorre is concerned that as the fire crosses the freeway "it will make its historic and typical run all the way down Pacific Coast Highway".

The blaze has spread rapidly overnight, fanned by strong winds, and has jumped Highway 101, a major route west of Los Angeles.

Heavy smoke and strong winds hampered visibility for crews on the firelines and residents trying to evacuate fire zones.

Winds calmed in some areas and intensified in others Friday morning, National Weather Service forecasts show.
