Hundreds evacuated after massive brush-fire burns through parts of California

The phenomenon makes for dangerous fire conditions, which is now affecting residents across Southern California, from Ventura County to the north, and Santa Clarita and Santa Ana to the east.

The fire spread extremely quickly. Firefighters are working very hard to minimize damage to property. The winds in some years - such as 1993, 2003 and 2007 - have produced multiple destructive fires.

According to officials, the cities of Ventura and Santa Paula are also threatened.

Zuckerberg said on Facebook and Instagram over the weekend that "you'll hear from me a little less" during this time. It was first reported at 6:24 p.m. Pacific Time, Buschow told The Post, and has moved "unbelievably fast" since then.

Rolinski said, "The term "moderate to strong" can be defined differently, but here it generally refers to sustained winds of roughly 20 mph or greater".

"Generally, it's awful fire weather today, tomorrow and Thursday", said forecaster Ryan Kittell.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

The fire broke out amid a red flag warning in the county Monday. The blaze eventually jumped SR-150, causing the highway's closure as it continued to eat through dry brush on both sides.

Images on social media showed just how fast and intense the wildfire was before dawn Tuesday morning.

"Fuel. Ignition. Meteorology. Each component of the formula are off the charts this year", said Bill Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. After midnight Tuesday, authorities issued more evacuation orders for the western part of Ventura, stating neighborhoods north of Main Street to Shell Road must be cleared.

"I left the meeting, raced home, and I saw a skyscraper inferno of smoke", Nasarenko said. Santa Ana's Creek Fire has destroyed 11,000 acres, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He doesn't yet know the fate of his house, but he said neighbors told him they saw nearby structures on fire.

"We haven't gotten in the business of resurrecting dead vegetation", Spelman said. And that was enough.

One person was killed in a car accident associated with the fire, officials said.

Rosenberg and his wife are currently at his parents'-in-law home in Carpinteria, about 25 minutes from their home. "It's a structure. You can always replace it".

A wildfire driven by California's dry, seasonal Santa Ana winds rapidly expanded to more than 12,500 hectares overnight outside Los Angeles, forcing widening evacuations on Tuesday.

The fire started at several points on the hills in the early morning and blew up to a raging fire, sprawling along the terrain, according to local residents.
