More fatalities confirmed as California wildfire continues to grow

A home burns as the Camp Fire rages through Paradise Calif. on Thursday Nov. 8 2018

In just 24 hours, the disastrous Camp Fire in Northern California has burned at the rate of nearly an acre per second and scorched an area more than twice the size of San Francisco.

The fire broke out Thursday northwest of Los Angeles and roared southward, jumping the us 101 freeway early Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

Five people are reported dead in the Camp Fire, which reports indicate has completely destroyed the town of Paradise, California.

Over 400 personnel were working on the fire early Friday morning. While there have been injuries from the fire, there's no official tally of how many civilians and firefighters were hurt or possibly killed.

Wind gusts could reach 70 miles per hour and relative humidity could be as low as 2 percent in Southern California on Friday, creating the conditions for the fire to rapidly spread.

"We have over 300 Los Angeles County firefighters here, and as mentioned collectively, that's going to grow, as we continue to battle this fire, as it is headed to the Pacific Ocean", Richardson said. And with a lull in the winds, Osby said firefighters will be establishing line perimeters as a means of controlling and knocking down the fire.

Also burning in Ventura County was the Hill Fire, which had torched 10 000 acres (4047 hectares) by Thursday night, fire officials said. "I pray everyone is safe", she said. "You pose a danger to yourself and emergency responders", Ventura County Fire Department Captain Scott Dettorre said about the drivers.

Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow said at least two people have been arrested on suspicion of looting in his county.

The fire started in Ventura County but raced into Los Angeles County, chewed its way through brush and into neighborhoods of Westlake Village and Malibu.

Containment remains at 0 percent for both fires. "But people know they can't get back in once they do leave".

"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation", he also told The Associated Press. The Tubbs Fire, which destroyed 5,636 structures in Napa and Sonoma counties in October 2017, is listed by Cal Fire as the most destructive in state history. Traffic accidents turned roads into gridlock and residents abandoned vehicles and ran from the flames carrying children and pets, officials said.

In Northern California, panicked residents fled the town of Paradise on Thursday morning with seemingly little notice as the Camp Fire swept through it. Evacuation orders included the entire city of Malibu.

The two other fires are smaller in size and have hit the southern part of the state.

Several evacuation sites were issuing protective masks for citizens, Ventura County Emergency Services said. Area hospitals have evacuated and all of Butte County schools are closed Friday.

The blaze, which spewed massive plumes of thick black smoke, also threatened parts of the nearby town of Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people earlier this week in a shooting rampage at a college bar, stunning the bucolic Southern California community with a reputation for safety.
