Caitlyn Jenner's Malibu home reportedly destroyed by wildfires

Caitlyn Jenner's Malibu home reportedly destroyed by wildfires

Tens of thousands of people are under mandatory evacuation orders and Palley says that the fires in the Santa Monica Mountains, above Malibu, have developed so fast that numerous roads there have become impassable even to firefighters.

The Hill Fire had consumed 10,000 acres, or 15 square miles, according to Cal Fire, though the Ventura County Fire Department reported no injuries or structure losses at a Thursday night press conference. (Reed Saxon/AP) Firefighters push a vehicle from a garage as the Woolsy fire burning a home near Malibu Lake in Malibu, Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

The Woolsey blaze shut down 101 Freeway after causing the evacuations of 75,000 homes in parts of Thousands Oaks in northwest Los Angeles, the site of a shooting massacre by a former usa marine this week.

After making the announcement about his home on Twitter this morning, others were quick to offer their support for Derrickson, including The Haunting of Hill House creator, Mike Flanagan.

The Thousand Oaks Teen Center had to be used as an evacuation site overnight for people fleeing the blazes - after being used Thursday as a family reunification center, where frantic parents waited for news of their children in the wake of the massacre at Borderline Bar & Grill.

There are two fires now burning around Malibu: the Hill and Woolsey fires.

Maclean said an as-yet unspecified number of civilians and firefighters were injured, and that it could be days before authorities would know of any fatalities.

"The smell of the smoke and realizing the smoke was a lot closer than I thought and then seeing flames up to my knees".

Another fire was burning farther west in Ventura County, also moving toward the ocean. Los Angeles Fire Department Public Information Officer Erik Scott says the blaze has destroyed or damaged many buildings.

United States media reports that schools have also been closed and evacuated due to the fire, and animals have been moved out of the LA Zoo in Griffith Park.

The Chico Fire Department said: "Firefighters continue to actively engage the fire in order to protect life and property".

Early Friday morning, the wildfire jumped the 101 in Ventura County into Agoura Hills, closing a 4-mile stretch of the highway. It burned in the same path as the 2013 Springs Fire that torched 24,000 acres before running into the Pacific Ocean.

Travel was limited on U.S. Highway 101 in the county, state highway patrol troopers said.

California's Santa Ana winds have stoked the fires, causing the Woolsley blaze to double in size to 8,000 acres, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Portions of Southern California remain under siege as two large brush fires are threatening numerous communities.
