Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu home burns down in Woolsey Fire

Long Beach Fire Department strike team sent to battle Hill Fire in Ventura • Long Beach Post

About 75,000 homes have been evacuated along the Ventura-Los Angeles County line in Southern California as a massive fire raged early Friday amid strong Santa Ana winds.

Almost 500 miles 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.

The blaze, known as the Woolsey Fire, is spreading south, has jumped a major highway and is now threatening coastal areas including parts of Malibu.

The Woosley Fire exploded from 2,000 acres to 8,000 in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in a matter of hours Thursday night into Friday.

Celebrities including Kim Kardashian West, Rainn Wilson and Melissa Etheridge are among the thousands forced to flee their homes as fires continue to threaten Malibu, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks.

The blaze that started Thursday morning east of Paradise and decimated the town also spread to the west.

A 1,500-acre fire burning near Suisun City in Solano County has not prompted evacuation orders or threatened structures.

A lot of the resources assigned to the Hill Fire were transferred to the Woolsey Fire, which became the priority for firefighting efforts with heavy air support and hundreds of personnel working Friday.

Colorado man pleads guilty to killing pregnant wife, kids
Rourke said he described "extraordinary delays" in carrying out the death penalty in Colorado since Gov. Watts is accused of killing his pregnant wife and their daughters at their home north of Denver.

No estimate was given on the number of structures destroyed but the Fire Department did say there were "many".

The fire was driven by heavy winds last night.

Hidden Hills resident Adrienne Janic gave her home over to firefighters late Thursday to use as a command center. She and her husband eventually were able to drive away safely.

No fatalities have been reported in two southern California wildfires. Meanwhile, the Hill Fire, located just down the road from the Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed earlier this week in a mass shooting, has topped 10,000 acres.

That fire has devastated the town of Paradise, where officials say almost every structure has been razed by out-of-control flames and five people were found dead in burned out vehicles early Friday afternoon. The fire near the Northern California town of Paradise has grown to almost 110 square miles.

NWS said wind guests of 50 to 70mph were expected to lash the mountains in Ventura County.

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

A separate blaze north of Thousand Oaks has burned about 750 acres in Simi Valley.
