The Los Angeles Fire Department reported at 7:53 a.m. Friday that a brush fire has also broken out in Griffith Park, near the zoo.

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.

Driven by 50 to 60 miles per hour wind gusts the brush fire is zero percent contained and also jumped Highway 101 near Chesebro Road in Agoura Hills on Friday morning.

The two blazes are among 16 now active fires in California.

At one point, one resident on Twitter pleaded for help in evacuating 40 horses from a a farm, The Malibu Times reports.

Evacuation notices were announced for Chico, which is home to around 93,000 people and is about 90 miles north of Sacramento. Fire officials said strong winds had hampered efforts to drop retardant by aircraft.

On Thursday, as flames engulfed Paradise, frantic residents racing to safety plunged into the thick smoke that darkened the daytime sky and made driving hard.

Here's another escape video, driving through a burning neighborhood. "The south side as well as the north side has been hit very hard as well".

"It was insane, because when we were sitting in traffic people were panicking", she said.

Almost 75,000 homes are under evacuation orders and at least 30,000 are at risk.

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.

Here is the latest on some of the largest and most devastating fires now burning in California. That's equal to about 60 football fields per minute.

- A wind-driven brush fire in Ventura County quadrupled overnight, scorching 8,000 acres by Friday morning and was zero percent contained, firefighters said.

"The first part of this fuel bed had not seen fire for many years".

As a result of the fire jumping the freeway, the City of Malibu was placed under mandatory evacuation orders, an emergency alert stated. The Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted that the fire is headed to the ocean, punctuating the message with the declaration: "Imminent threat!"

The city of Malibu along the California coast is under mandatory evacuation this morning after a wildfire known as the Woolsey Fire jumped across the 101 freeway and began burning south.
