Malibu residents ordered out as California wildfire nears

Malibu residents ordered out as California wildfire nears

The Woolsey Fire started in Simi Valley Thursday, where it destroyed about 30 homes and burned 8,000 acres by early Friday.

Jenner's mansion overlooked the beach area and had previously been featured on her show, I Am Cait.

The fire broke out near Thousand Oaks, an area about 40 miles (64 km) northwest of downtown Los Angeles where an attacker killed 12 people on Wednesday, prompting the evacuation of 75,000 homes.

TMZ first reported that Jenner's home in the Malibu hills had been destroyed. High powered winds tore the roof off her home in 2017. Khloe Kardashian tweeted: "I can't believe this is happening ... completely devastating for anyone for anyone who loses tangible memories and the security of their home". "I pray everyone is safe".

Homeowners fleeing the wind-driven blaze jammed roadways as the fire crept closer to a community that is home to such movie and TV stars as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Ellen DeGeneres and Angelina Jolie.

The fire prompted the closure of all schools in the Las Virgines Unified School District in Calabasas, as well as Viewpoint School, Montessori of Calabasas, Montessori of Calabasas Too and Muse School, the city of Calabasas announced this morning. People are working together to not only help others evacuate but to provide updates, rescue animals, and provide shelter.

The mother-of-one tweeted: 'Fuck! One of the worst fires in state history hit the area in September 1970, destroying 400 homes and killing 10 people.

"Such attractive words. And Yes thank you to all first responders!" a third user added.

Parts of the city have been evacuated, as firefighters struggle to contain the inferno at the city limits. If you can, turn on ABC 7. Not worth it! Sending Prayers!

An evacuation site was at capacity at the Thousand Oaks Teen Centre, which had also served as a family assistance and reunification site following the shooting.

The couple are said to have evacuated their entire security team from the property. Five people have been found dead there in a vehicle that was overcome by flames, the Butte County Sheriff's Department said.

The blaze sent residents fleeing, and now threatens the city of Chico, home to 90,000 people.

The brush fire ignited near Hill Canyon in Camarillo at 2:04 p.m., according to the Ventura County Fire Department.

Scott Maclean, the state's forestry and fire protection spokesman, said a number of civilians and firefighters had been injured in the fire north of Sacramento but it would be days before the authorities knew whether anyone had died.

Metro.co.uk have reached out to Caitlyn's reps for comment.
