At least 1,000 structures destroyed by fast-moving fire in Northern California

Residents of the beachside city of Malibu have been ordered to evacuate as three fast-moving wildfires raged in California on Friday morning, including one that also spurred the evacuation of 75,000 homes near a city that was still reeling from a mass shooting.

The fire earlier ripped through Paradise, about 20 miles east of Chico.

"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation", he also told The Associated Press.

Cars and trucks, some with trailers attached, were left on the roadside as evacuees ran for their lives, said Bass, the police officer.

"We have five confirmed", the official said on Friday when asked about the number of fatalities related to the wildfires.

Two fires there are rapidly expanding towards the coast causing the city of Malibu to evacuate.

Two wildfires raging west of Los Angeles have force thousands of people to leave their homes. The blaze sent residents fleeing, and now threatens the city of Chico, home to 90,000 people.

Another fire northwest of Los Angeles has been swept southward toward the ocean by strong Santa Ana winds.

The town of Paradise, California, which has about 27,000 people, was asked to evacuate the area.

Malibu Under Evacuation Orders as Massive Fire Rages
Friday after scorching 8,000 acres and destroying at least 30 homes in the two counties, fire officials said. Another blaze in northern California has destroyed one town and is threatening another, officials say.

"By the time we got out, the flames were a half mile away from the school".

About 900 evacuees fleeing the Woolsey fire checked had checked into the evacuation center by 8:30 a.m. Friday, and a second gym would soon open to meet increasing demand, said Rolf Schleicher, vice president of administrative services at the college.

"I was frantic", she said.

"The whole lower side of Paradise is totally engulfed in flames right now", Kevin Winstead, a resident of nearby Magalia, told KIEM TV.

Blome drove through the town with a man named Fred, crying, pointing out Sam's Liquor, Safeway, McDonald's, the church, the tire shop, the vehicle wash, apartments, her doctor's office, the bowling alley, a hotel, the veterinarian - all of which had gone up in flames. Miller at first scoffed at the notion of getting back in a vehicle.

Concerned friends and family posted anxious messages on Twitter and other sites, saying they were looking for loved ones, particularly seniors who lived at retirement homes or alone. (Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images) A wildfire burns a home near Malibu Lake in Malibu, Calif., Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

Kelly Lee called shelters looking for her husband's 93-year-old grandmother, Dorothy Herrera, who was last heard from Thursday morning.

Allen says that if the fires continue to grow, more communities will be put at risk and place additional AG churches in harm's way. "I'm devastated." "We're just hoping that our brand new home that we were hoping to move into tomorrow is not burned to the ground", Winstead said.
