Southern California fires force evacuation of 75000 homes

It's one of two wildfires burning in the region.

The Camp Fire headed to the outskirts of Chico early on Friday, forcing thousands to flee after it left the nearby town of Paradise in ruins, California fire officials said.

Officials stated the fast-moving blaze quickly blew into the Newbury Park area and jumped the Highway 101 within 12 minutes.

The city tweeted that the evacuation affects areas between the Ventura county line and Malibu Canyon. The fire was burning on the south side of the freeway in areas that were evacuated hours earlier. "And if you leave early, it helps us tremendously".

The scenes of devastation in Paradise, widely circulating on social media Friday morning, come as more than 75,000 homes have been ordered evacuated farther south in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, where two other blazes rage.

Mandatory evacuations were already ordered for north of the 101 from Valley Vista to Reyes Adobe in the areas of Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Westlake Village, according to emergency officials.

Local news reporter Tom Wait of CBS2 described the fire as "apocalyptic" with ember and ash raining down from the flames.

About 1:30 a.m., all residents south of the Ventura Freeway between Westlake Boulevard on the west, Mulholland Highway to the south and Las Virgenes Road to the east were told to leave the area immediately, according to Malibu Search and Rescue.

Malibu public schools are also closed.

More than 400 firefighters from Ventura County, Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles and Cal Fire were battling the brush fire.

"They will continue to save homes and do whatever they can until the work is done", L.A. County Fire Dept. Battalion Chief Trey Espy told CBS2.

The Los Angeles Police Department also issued a citywide tactical alert for the fire, allowing its units to assist in handling the fire.

Rescuers used a bulldozer to push abandoned cars out of the way in order to reach a hospital and evacuate patients as the fire engulfed the building, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter said.

No injuries have been reported in either fire.

"It's been a roller coaster", one Oak Park resident told CBS2, explaining he made a decision to stay behind and watch over his neighbors' homes in the area of Kellwood Ct. and Churchwood Dr. and had the utmost faith in firefighters.

Crews are doing everything possible to get control of the fire, Dettorre said. "There's not a lot of buffer here but these guys are just awesome". Winds were blowing between 25-30 miles per hour and pushed the fire across the freeway onto Conejo Mountain toward the Pacific Coast Highway.

The nearest evacuation center is at Palisades High School, located at 15777 Bowdoin St, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.
