Malibu Under Evacuation Orders as Massive Fire Rages

The L.A. Times reported that a total of 75,000 homes in both Ventura and Los Angeles counties are now under mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders, including Westlake Village and parts of Calabasas, where numerous entertainers including Alyssa Milano and Kim Kardashian have lavish homes.

The Woolsey Fire was zero percent contained as of 4 a.m. Friday after scorching 8,000 acres and destroying at least 30 homes in the two counties, fire officials said.

In addition to directing Doctor Strange, Derrickson has also taken the reigns on multiple horror films, including The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister.

CAL Fire reports they are assisting with a wildfire that has broken out in Ventura County.

The entire city of Malibu was ordered to evacuate Friday morning as well as surrounding areas south of Highway 101, the entire community of Oak Park and sections of Thousand Oaks, according to a Ventura County incident webpage.

"There was really no firefight involved", said Capt. Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, explaining that crews gave up on attacking the flames and instead helped people evacuate.

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.

Both fires erupted Thursday afternoon and have grown rapidly.

The Woolsey Fire broke out about 2:25 p.m. Thursday, pushed by strong Santa Ana winds which prevented fire commanders from ordering aerial assaults in the early morning hours.

There are Red Flag warnings in effect for parts of Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

L.A. County Fire Dept. Battalion Chief Trey Espy confirmed 15 to 20 homes were impacted in the area of Kellwood Ct. and Churchwood Dr. and additional homes were impacted in nearby areas.

Dettorre is concerned that as the fire crosses the freeway "it will make its historic and typical run all the way down Pacific Coast Highway".

Evacuation orders in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles County were also downgraded to voluntary.

The Woolsey Fire, broke out on Thursday, not too far from the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people enjoying country line dancing at college night before killing himself.

A mass shooting claimed the lives of 12 people in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday night. No roadways were closed as of Friday.
