Woolsey fire forces evacuation of Malibu

Woolsey fire forces evacuation of Malibu

Several structures have been destroyed, thousands of homes are threatened and the entire City of Malibu was under mandatory evacuation orders as the Woolsey Fire burned for its second day Friday.

The Butte County Sheriff's office said the victims had been burned to death in their cars and could not immediately be identified.

No injuries were officially reported, but sheriff's detectives are investigating the discovery of two bodies in the 33000 block of Mulholland Highway.

Another 35 people had been reported missing and three firefighters had been injured.

The rapidly expanding Camp fire blazing through Northern California has disrupted phone and internet service, according to Butte County. This means some phone numbers are down.

In the first 12 hours the Camp Fire burned 54,000 acres as it roared through Paradise, California destroying large sections of the city.

The strong winds and the dry conditions in the area have led to a rapid expansion of the fire.

A powerful wildfire in northern California incinerated most of a town of about 30,000 people, leaving at least nine dead in what quickly grew into the state's most destructive fire in at least a century.

The Malibu area is also home to dozens of filming locations.

The Woolsey Fire continues to threaten homes in Westlake Village and Oak Park and has hopped the 101 Freeway on its way toward Malibu, where a mandatory evacuation early Friday morning saw the town of 13,000 evacuate in its entirety along the Pacific Coast Highway. The Hill fire pushed through canyons to the edge of Camarillo Springs and Cal State Channel Islands, both of which were evacuated.

It was a blow, of course". "It is more that Jurgen Klopp tried to change his team around a little bit and it did not work". Following the Reds travels to Serbia, Jurgen Klopp was probably expecting to be able to rotate heavily for this game.

Other major fires in the state include the Hill Fire, now 6,000 acres in size, and the Woolsey Fire, which is 8,000 acres in size.

Fueled by high winds and low humidity, the fire has placed millions of people under red flag warnings.

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

The fire burning east of Chico has destroyed much of the community of Paradise, a city with a population of almost 27,000 people. "I pray everyone is safe", she said.

"There was really no firefight involved", said Capt. Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, explaining that crews gave up attacking the flames and instead helped people evacuate.

Residents who managed to escape Paradise posted harrowing videos to social media as they drove through tunnels of swirling smoke and orange flames to outrun the wildfire in the Butte County town, north of Sacramento.

The governor-elect of California, Gavin Newsom, on Friday issued an emergency proclamation for Ventura and Los Angeles counties due to the Woolsey and Hill fires.

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

Another fire was burning farther west in Ventura County, also moving toward the ocean. "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor", Trump tweeted on Saturday. On Friday, part of it was burning into the footprint of a 2013 wildfire, which could slow its spread, Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said. At least 75,000 homes in western Los Angeles and eastern Ventura County were evacuated.
