Fanned by high winds and fueled by low humidity and dry vegetation, the fires spread rapidly Thursday and overnight into Friday.

Fast-moving wildfires on Friday morning led to the evacuation of 75,000 homes as the Woolsey Fire hit parts of Thousand Oaks in Ventura County northwest of Los Angeles.

The fire began about 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Woolsey Canyon, east of Simi Valley.

The Hill Fire had consumed 10,000 acres, or 15 square miles, according to Cal Fire, though the Ventura County Fire Department reported no injuries or structure losses at a Thursday night press conference.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department has issued mandatory evacuation orders south of the 101 freeway to Mulholland Highway.

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 have put most of Northern California under a Red Flag Warning, which means "extreme fire behaviour" can occur within 24 hours.

About 1,000 structures have been reportedly destroyed, majority in Paradise, a town of about 26,000 people that has been virtually wiped out by the exploding blaze, reports and photos show.

No estimate was given on the number of structures destroyed but the Fire Department did say there were "many".

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.

About two-thirds of the city of Malibu was ordered evacuated early Friday as a ferocious Southern California's wildfire roared toward the beachside community that is home for many Hollywood celebrities.

Los Angeles county and city crews were assisting in the firefight, which was taking place as a second, larger brush fire raged further west in Ventura County in the Santa Rosa Valley and Thousand Oaks area.

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.

Wind gusts of up to 77 miles per hour were reported in Los Angeles County on Friday morning.

Drivers heading south to Los Angeles will encounter closures on both sides of Highway 101 from Reyes Adobe Road in Agoura Hills to Las Virgenes Road in Calabasas, according to Caltrans District 7.
