Long Beach Fire Department strike team sent to battle Hill Fire in Ventura • Long Beach Post

This morning at 7:00am, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported via Twitter that the fire is an "imminent threat" to Malibu. The trendy beach resort has about 13,000 residents and 21 miles of gorgeous coastline.

The Ventura County Fire Department said evacuation orders were issued for some 75,000 homes in Ventura County and neighboring Los Angeles County.

The fire was driven by heavy winds last night. No injuries have been reported. Fire engines were not able to reach the fire, and firefighters were forced to hike in on foot and hose down vulnerable areas, while a firefighting helicopter hovered overhead.

Authorities said earlier the flames had destroyed multiple structures, though it was unclear how many, and it continued to threaten at least 30,000 homes in the two counties.

The incident seemed to affect both sets of players for the rest of the game, with little in the way of goalscoring opportunities. Emery's men can secure top spot in the group with victory at Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava on November 29.


A third brush fire in Griffith Park broke out Friday morning above the Los Angeles Zoo.

Borchard Community Center, Rancho Santa Susana Recreation Center, Camarillo Community Center, Thousand Oaks Teen Center, and Goebel Adult Community Center are open in Ventura County.

"I feel very vulnerable posting this but I feel I should", Chatfield wrote on Facebook. The blaze sent residents fleeing, and now threatens the city of Chico, home to 90,000 people.

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.

Evacuation orders were imposed overnight affecting tens of thousands of residents in both counties, and at 10 a.m. Friday, mandatory evacuation orders were expanded to include the entire city of Malibu. So far, it has burned through 20,000 acres, injured firefighters and residents, and prompted hospitals and schools to quickly evacuate.

Almost 2,300 fire personnel are battling the blaze. "You pose a danger to yourself and emergency responders", Ventura County Fire Department Captain Scott Dettorre said about the drivers.

A lot of the resources assigned to the Hill Fire were transferred to the Woolsey Fire, which became the priority for firefighting efforts with heavy air support and hundreds of personnel working Friday.

Santa Barbara County fire agencies sent strike teams to help fight the Ventura County fires and local law enforcement agencies sent personnel south to help evacuate residents and staff road closures, sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said Friday.
