Wildfire destroys thousands of buildings in California town

Southern California fires force evacuation of Malibu Wildfires rage across California, killing at least five

In Southern California, two fires burned near the town of Thousand Oaks with towering smoke clouds visible at the site of a mass shooting where a gunman killed more than a dozen people just hours earlier.

After an 8-2 regular season, Paradise was rewarded with the No. 3 seed in California's Northern Section Division II playoffs and a home game that would have been played Friday night against Red Bluff.

"It's a worst-case scenario", Bass said.

About 20 of the same deputies who were helping to find and rescue people lost their own homes, Sheriff Kory Honea said. "Regrettably, not everybody made it out".

A vintage vehicle rests among debris as the Camp Fire tears through Paradise.

At least one nursing home and the Feather River Hospital were evacuated and several homes were on fire, according to the Sacramento Bee, and the region is covered with thick, dark smoke.

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

A school bus was among several abandoned vehicles left blackened by flames on one road.

The blaze, called Camp Fire, broke out on Thursday evening and was only 5% contained as of nightfall on Friday.

A piece of art sits outside the burned remains of home Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, that was destroyed by a wildfire that swept through the area Thursday, in Paradise, California.

6,453 of those structures were residences, 260 were commercial buildings.

The fire has also reportedly destroyed the set for popular TV series Westworld, with one person tweeting photos of the destruction saying it had "burned to the ground".

In Malibu flames driven by hot winds raced down hillsides and through canyons toward multi-million dollar homes. Evacuation orders were issued for residents of the beachside community of Malibu.

Among those forced to flee were celebrities including Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian, who said on Twitter that flames had damaged the home she shares in nearby Calabasas with Kanye West.

The 101 freeway is closed as the both the Hill and Woolsey fires have jumped the freeway near Camarillo as well as in Agoura Hills near Malibu. Her publicist could not confirm the status of her house, but told Reuters that Jenner was safe.

"Fortunately for us, it is burning into the old footprint of the Springs Fire of 2013, and the fire activity there has diminished", he told reporters Friday, adding that this has allowed crews to "focus a little bit more heavily" on the Woolsey Fire instead. "Imminent threat! Malibu lakes residents must leave area immediately". Another fire was burning farther west in Ventura County, also moving toward the ocean.

The Woolsey blaze shut down 101 Freeway after causing the evacuations of 75,000 homes in parts of Thousands Oaks in northwest Los Angeles, the site of a shooting massacre by a former U.S. marine this week. On Friday, it climbed over the Santa Monica Mountains toward Malibu. Traffic accidents turned roads into gridlock and residents abandoned vehicles and ran from the flames carrying children and pets, officials said.
