Malibu Fire ‘Out of Control,’ Dozens of Homes Destroyed Including Caitlyn Jenner’s

Tens of thousands flee fast-moving Northern California fire

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Director Ken Pimlott said Friday firefighters are focused on saving lives and are still rescuing people from fires. A list compiled by a local news affiliate reports a growing number of missing people after almost the entire town of Paradise, population roughly 30,000, has been destroyed.

Also burning in Ventura County was the Hill Fire, which had torched 10,000 acres (4047 hectares) by Thursday night, fire officials said.

"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation", Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said late Thursday. "It was the event we have feared for a long time", Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said at a Friday evening press conference. Within six hours, it had grown to more than 69 square kilometres, Gaddie said.

ABC7.com reported that 75,000 homes were under evacuation orders along the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Some buildings caught fire and were damaged but the main facility, Adventist Health Feather River Hospital, was not, spokeswoman Jill Kinney said.

The fast-moving wildfire has advanced to the outskirts of the Northern California city of Chico on November 09, 2018, forcing thousands to flee.

At present two of the three fire fronts are reporting zero containment. "And if you've been told to go, get out of there". 'People started getting out of their vehicles and running'.

A red flag warning is in effect in the area, meaning Thursday will bring 20-to-40-mph winds and low humidity that threaten to spread the wildfire. The Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted a list of evacuation centers on Friday for those leaving their homes; they include the Borchard Community Center, Rancho Santa Susana Rec Center, Camarillo Community Center, 1000 Oaks Teen Center, Goebel Community Center, Taft High School and Pierce College.

"The wind that was predicted came and just wiped it out". Firefighters were able to stop the fire at the edge of the city, where evacuation orders remained in place Friday, Cal Fire Cpt.

Malibu and the surrounding areas have been hit by many devastating wildfires over the years. Herrera, who lives in Paradise with her 88-year-old husband Lou Herrera, left a frantic voicemail at around 9:30 a.m. saying they needed to get out.

"We never heard from them again", Lee said. I've linked to both of them and provided descriptions below.

With fires also burning in Southern California, state officials put the total number of people forced from their homes at about 250,000.

More than 250,000 have been evacuated across the state of California, which is now battling three wildfires, fanned by strong winds.

In just 24 hours, the disastrous Camp Fire in Northern California has burned at the rate of nearly an acre per second and scorched an area more than twice the size of San Francisco.

USA media reports that schools have also been closed and evacuated due to the fire, and animals have been moved out of the LA Zoo in Griffith Park.
