Two Major Fires Burning in Ventura County

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.

Approximately 75,000 homes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties are under mandatory evacuations due to the Woolsey and Hill fires.

The Hill Fire, which was reported in the Hill Canyon area of Santa Rosa Valley at about 2 p.m. Thursday, quickly charred thousands of acres and jumped Highway 101, which was closed in the area overnight, according to the Ventura County Fire Department.

The Camarillo-area fire, dubbed the Hill Fire, was fed by 25- to 30-mph winds that pushed flames across Highway 101 and toward Pacific Coast Highway, Ventura County Firespokesman Mike Lindbery said Thursday night.

Television reports showed several homes on fire in the Oak Park community. (Reed Saxon/AP) Firefighters push a vehicle from a garage as the Woolsy fire burning a home near Malibu Lake in Malibu, Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

"The town is devastated, everything is destroyed", said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman Scott Maclean, referring to Paradise, which has a population of 26,000. It burned in the same path as the 2013 Springs Fire that torched 24,000 acres before running into the Pacific Ocean.

She's been in the home since 2015, and she's had to deal with natural disaster issues before.

Kourtney Kardashian also posted about the emergency on her Instagram story, writing, "I pray that everyone is kept safe and protested from these fires".

Cal Fire Captain - John Gaddie - said the town of just 27,000 was "destroyed" by the flames. Meanwhile, the Hill Fire, located just down the road from the Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed earlier this week in a mass shooting, has topped 10,000 acres.

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

"We were surrounded by fire, we were driving through fire on each side of the road", said police officer Mark Bass, who lives in Paradise and works in neighboring Chico.

More than 2,000 fire officials among 59 crews were working to contain the fire as of Friday morning.

Under dry, Santa Ana conditions, once again California is ablaze.

Some 20,000 acres of land have been left scorched in the wake of the fires, which remain zero percent under control as of Friday afternoon, according to officials.
