Southern California fires force evacuation of Malibu

Vehicles are seen during evacuation from Paradise to Chico in Butte County California U.S in this Tens of thousands flee fast-moving Northern California fire

As people fled in cars, some abandoned their vehicles, running from encroaching flames as they held babies and pets in their arms, said Gina Oviedo, who described a devastating scene as she evacuated the town of Paradise.

"Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests". Three more were found outside a residence, and one inside a house. On Friday, it climbed over the Santa Monica Mountains toward Malibu.

Nine people died in what quickly grew into the state's most destructive fire in at least a century.

In Southern California, strong Santa Ana winds were fanning two fires, including the Woolsey Fire, which by Friday morning had burned across USA 101 and was heading in the direction of Malibu.

Almost 800 kilometres to the south, a second blaze forced the evacuation of the upscale oceanside city of Malibu and threatened the beleaguered town of Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people this week in a rampage in a bar and dance hall.

"Due to the fluid and rapidly changing conditions, residents are urged to stay updated through official sources for changes to evacuations and road closures".

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. Miller jumped in her boyfriend's rickety pickup truck, which was low on gas and equipped with a bad transmission.

Her husband, the rapper Kanye West, said their family was "safe and close". "It was chaos. I couldn't believe what people were doing".

"There's nothing much left standing", said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman Scott Maclean. "They were going off like bombs", said Karen Auday, who escaped to a nearby town.

The Camp Fire, which broke out on Thursday at the edge of the Plumas National Forest northeast of Sacramento, has since blackened more than 90,000 acres and was only 5 percent contained as of nightfall on Friday.

Meanwhile, the authorities of the city of Malibu in california have ordered a mass evacuation.

One of the fires broke out Thursday north-west of Los Angeles and roared south, jumping the United States 101 freeway early Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains. He blamed the fires - still burning in both Northern and Souther California - on "gross mismanagement of the forests".

In Southern California, two separate fires have consumed about 18,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

The fire broke out on Thursday north west of Los Angeles and roared south, jumping the USA 101 freeway early on Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

A nurse called Rita Miller on Thursday morning, telling her she had to get her disabled mother, who lives a few blocks away, and flee Paradise immediately.

In Hidden Hills, just north of Calabasas, Adrienne Janic gave her home over to firefighters late Thursday to use as a command center.
