Dead In California Wildfire, Hollywood Celebs Evacuated

Tens of thousands flee fast-moving Northern California fire

A Northern California wildfire that moved so fast firefighters didn't even try to stop it killed five people, authorities said Friday as the blaze quadrupled in size after leveling much of a town of almost 30,000 people.

The monster wildfires still burned out of control on Saturday in northern and southern California, after killing at least nine people, who were found dead in vehicles torched by the flames. Paradise is popular with retirees, and has a population of about 27,000.

The town saw 6,700 homes and businesses ravaged by the fire, one of the most destructive in state history.

Toxic smoke is reported as far as 240 kilometers (150 miles) away, shrouding the San Francisco Bay Area and our office located there.

There was no estimated time to contain the fire, but officials said they would hold a daily news conference from the same location and time if conditions permit, until the fire is out. The Malibu blaze, dubbed the Woolsey Fire by officials, has burned 35,000 acres in the hills northwest of Los Angeles since it began Thursday afternoon and was still nowhere near being contained.

A Chico County police officer called in to "Shepard Smith Reporting" Friday to describe the devastation a deadly, fast-moving wildfire has caused in the town of Paradise, California.

On Friday, Pepperdine University announced it was shutting down its campuses in Malibu and Calabasas due to the Woolsey fire, The Malibu Times reported.

Queues to leave the city have resulted in traffic jams and gridlock, which has led people to leave cars abandoned on roads as they rush to safety. "And if you've been told to go, get out of there". "People started getting out of their vehicles and running".

"They were abandoned because traffic was so bad, backed up for hours", Bass said.

Firefighter Adrien Mahnke pauses while battling the Camp Fire as it tears through Paradise, Calif., on November 8, 2018.

A red flag warning is in effect in the area, meaning Thursday will bring 20-to-40-mph winds and low humidity that threaten to spread the wildfire. God help us!' Bernacett said before breaking down crying.

Acting California Governor Gavin Newsom has requested an emergency presidential disaster declaration from Trump to speed the flow of federal aid to victims. At least two firefighters have been injured and multiple civilians injured, but number aren't available yet, Butte County Fire Battalion Chief Bill Reid said Thursday.

"The first part of this fuel bed had not seen fire for many years". Herrera, who lives in Paradise with her 88-year-old husband, Lou, left a frantic voicemail around 9:30 a.m. saying they needed to get out. They do have a auto, but they both are older and can be confused at times'.

He blamed the fires - still burning in both Northern and Souther California - on "gross mismanagement of the forests".

A raging wildfire in southern California has triggered a mandatory evacuation order for much of the beachside city of Malibu.

She and her husband "knocked on doors, yelled and screamed" to alert as numerous residents of 53 mobile homes and recreational vehicles as possible, Bernacett said.
