Thousands flee as three California blazes leave trails of destruction

Nurse Cassie Lerossignol hugs as coworker as the Feather River Hospital burns while the Camp Fire rages through Paradise Calif. on Thursday Nov. 8 2018

The fire then pushed south, jumped the 101 freeway on Friday morning and pushed into the Santa Monica range.

No injuries were officially reported, but sheriff's detectives are investigating the discovery of two bodies in the 33000 block of Mulholland Highway.

The National Weather Service issued red-flag warnings for fire dangers in many areas of the state, saying low humidity and strong winds were expected to continue through the evening.

Portions of the community have been evacuated, according to Los Angeles County Fire officials. "It's hard to express how fast a fire can move across dry ground", Allen says.

About two-thirds of the city of Malibu was ordered evacuated early Friday as a ferocious Southern California's wildfire roared toward the beachside community that is home for many Hollywood celebrities.

While not as big as the Camp Fire, the Woolsey Fire, which now measures approximately 8,000 acres, is in a much more densely populated area.

In Northern California's Butte County, a huge brush fire devasted the town of Paradise, where 1,000 structures were lost. Her husband was apparently in NY at the time.

Investigators with the Butte County Sheriff's Office located the five fatalities in the area of Edgewood Lane in Paradise town of about 30,000 people in Butte County, about 130 km north of California State's capital Sacramento.

Further north near Sacramento, the five victims were found in cars in a town that was destroyed by the Camp Fire.

Dead Brothel Owner Wins Local Nevada Election Running as a Republican
The Love Ranch brothel that Hof owned became notorious as the place where former Laker Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015. When Hof died , it was already too late to remove his name from the ballot, and ballots had already been printed and mailed.

The Ventura County Fire Department told the publication that about 75,000 homes in Ventura and Los Angeles counties were under mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders due to the blaze.

The Woolsey Fire exploded from 2,000 acres to 8,000 in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in a matter of hours. There were many stories of heroism, as residents and first responders went back into the raging inferno to save the elderly and others unable to get to safety.

'The town is devastated, everything is destroyed, ' Cal Fire spokesman Scott Maclean said.

Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency on Thursday and has asked for federal funds to help those affected.

Another neighbor said the fire was "like a freight train" and praised firefighters for saving so many homes.

Rescuers used a bulldozer to push abandoned cars out the way to reach Feather River Hospital and evacuate patients as flames engulfed the building, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter told reporters. In Northern California, a blaze visible by satellite consumed the town of Paradise on Thursday and had burned almost 110 square miles by Friday morning.

The vehicles with the deceased were found close to each other and near a roadway that leads out of Paradise, California, which has been largely consumed by fire since Thursday. Evacuation orders included the entire city of Malibu.

It grew by 5,000 acres Thursday in just three hours, according to Cal Fire, meaning it expanded by an average of more than one football field every 3 seconds during that period. "All residents, from Ventura County Line to the area of the Getty Villa and the Ventura (101) Freeway to the ocean, must evacuate as soon as possible".

Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott said a "very significant, unsafe weather pattern" would continue through the end of the weekend.
