Wildfires near California town still reeling from bar shooting

The Woolsey blaze also struck parts of Los Angeles County, where mandatory evacuation orders were given on Friday morning, usa time, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

In Northern California's Butte County, a huge brush fire devasted the town of Paradise, where 1,000 structures were lost.

The Los Angeles Police Department was placed on a citywide tactical alert early Friday to ensure all resources are available to assist with any evacuation orders and road closures prompted by the Woolsey Fire, according to a statement from the department. It has burned about 6,100 acres as of Friday morning.

The swift-moving Camp Fire, raging about 80 miles north of Sacramento, consumed Paradise, and moved Friday morning into the eastern side of Chico, a city with a population of around 90,000.

The flames are now threatening coastal areas further south, fire officials said.

Homeowners fleeing the wind-driven blaze jammed roadways as the fire crept closer to a community that is home to such movie and TV stars as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Ellen DeGeneres and Angelina Jolie.

A wildfire that moved so fast that firefighters couldn't hope to stop it quadrupled in size Friday after destroying several thousand buildings and leveling much of a Northern California town of almost 30,000 people, authorities said.

The fire had jumped Highway 101 in several places, including Calabasas and Agoura Hills, as it barrelled south towards coastal Malibu.

Malibu itself - a city of about 12,000 people and known for beachside homes owned by celebrities and millionaires - was put under an evacuation order Friday morning.

Video of her drive out of town shows the fire emitting an orange-red glow in the distance in the nighttime sky.

Multiple injuries have been reported by both civilians and firefighters, Cal Fire spokesman John Gaddie said.

Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said a couple of thousand structures were destroyed in the town about 180 miles northeast of San Francisco.

That county is also facing danger from a second fire, the Hill Fire, which sparked Thursday very near the location of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks where 12 were killed.

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

More than 400 firefighters from Ventura County, Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles and Cal Fire were battling the brush fire. "Just landed back home and had one hour to pack up and evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe", she wrote.
