Voluntary evacuations of 75,000 homes were called for because of the Woolsey Fire that included parts of Thousand Oaks in Ventura County northwest of Los Angeles, the site of a mass shooting incident this week in which 12 people were killed.

Thousands more residents have since been ordered to evacuate towns to the west, including Calabasas, the south of Highway 101, and Malibu on the coast, as well as from the western edge of Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department issue an "imminent threat" warning and tweeted that the fire raging through the Santa Monica Mountains was headed to the ocean.

"By the time we got out, the flames were a half mile away from the school".

Rural areas fared little better.

The blaze earlier ripped through Paradise, about 20 miles east of Chico. "It's that kind of devastation", he said.

According to authorities, an additional 15,000 structures are threatened and, with power and communications lines down in some affected areas, it is unclear how many lives are at risk. The company said it later noticed damage to a transmission tower near the town.

Amy Lieu is a news editor and reporter for Fox News. The Hill Fire caused an evacuation of Cal State University-Channel Islands and about 1,000 homes.

"It's hard", Cal Fire Butte County Capt. John Gaddi said.

There were no signs of life Friday on the road to Paradise except for the occasional bird chirp. McLean said that by the middle of the day, there was so much smoke in the air, it looked like it was nighttime. Red pool umbrellas were furled near lounge chairs and showed not a singe on them.

The video resembles nothing more than a terrifying escape from Hell.

Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano Driven From Homes by California Wildfires
Other celebrities such as Alyssa Milano and Rainn Wilson said they had to evacuate their homes due to the fires. These were only two of the fires burning uncontrolled in California deep into the night on Thursday.

"We were surrounded by fire".

Many abandoned their cars and trucks on the side of the road.

One Paradise resident who fled the encroaching blaze told the Bee: "It was so hot". Miller jumped in her boyfriend's rickety pickup truck, which was low on gas and equipped with a bad transmission. Jenner posted on Instagram that she was safe, adding "Don't know if the house made it or not". After an hour of no movement, she abandoned the truck and chose to try her luck on foot.

"My daughter's going out for the gold nugget queen this year", said Harvey, then she paused. "People started getting out of their vehicles and running".

Actress Alyssa Milano, one of Kardashian's neighbours in Calabasas, wrote on Twitter that she was also evacuated. This is terrifying. I can't breathe.

The remains of five of the victims were discovered in or near burned out cars, three outside residences and one inside a home, Honea said. "And it moved very, very quickly from a rather remote area to populated areas".

"My husband tried his best to get everybody out".

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

A trio of rapidly expanding wildfires are burning in California, marking the latest in a string of harrowing climate-related disasters in America.

The town's 100-bed hospital is still standing, but two of its smaller buildings, including an outpatient clinic, are flattened.

"The whole hill's on fire", she said while crying. So if you love independent, local journalism, join us.
