Long Beach Fire Department strike team sent to battle Hill Fire in Ventura • Long Beach Post

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.

Voluntary evacuations have been added in Ventura County for Lake Sherwood and the area south of Highway 101 and north of Potrero Rd. between Westlake Blvd. and Wendy Dr.in Thousand Oaks.

The so-called Woolsey Fire burning west of Los Angeles has surpassed 15 square miles (39 square kilometers) Friday morning and is continuing to grow.

At least five people have died in burnt out cars as wildfires sweep across California. "These are the worst wildland-urban interface fire conditions I've ever seen", says Palley.

Following a TMZ report that Jenner's Malibu home burned down in the midst of the rapidly spreading 14,000-acre Woolsey Canyon wildfire in Ventura County, a rep for Jenner told ET earlier in the day: "She is safe but we have no information regarding the house". "I pray everyone is safe", she wrote.


"Please, please, please if you are asked to voluntarily leave the area, please do", Ventura County fire Capt. Scott Dettore told CNN affiliate KTLA on Friday morning.

Fire officials state a significant number structures have been damaged or destroyed and is estimated to be over 8,000 acres. She lived in the home since 2015.

The Los Angeles Police Department was placed on a citywide tactical alert early Friday to ensure all resources are available to assist with any evacuation orders and road closures prompted by the Woolsey Fire, according to a statement from the department.

Accidents gridlocked routes out of Paradise and residents abandoned their cars and fled on foot carrying children and pets, Reuters quoted local officials as saying.

The blaze threatened several communities and institutions including the Point Mugu Naval Base and California State University, Channel Islands campus, according to authorities. Winds haven't been as strong in fires in the area in the recent past.


The Chico Fire Department said: 'Firefighters continue to actively engage the fire in order to protect life and property'. Last night it covered just 2,000 acres.

Friday morning, fire officials reported that the fire had jumped Highway 101 near the city of Calabasas.

There are two fires now burning around Malibu: the Hill and Woolsey fires.

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.

By 1 a.m. (4 a.m. ET), more firefighters arrived as the flames closed in on Janic's street.
