The governor-elect of California, Gavin Newsom, on Friday issued an emergency proclamation for Ventura and Los Angeles counties due to the Woolsey and Hill fires.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office has confirmed at least five people were killed Thursday in the wildfire that nearly completely destroyed the town of Paradise. The blaze, which sparked Thursday, burnt 70,000 acres with 5 percent containment as of 10:30 a.m. Friday.

"The town is devastated, everything is destroyed", California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Capt. Scott McLean told NBC News.

In addition to the five people found dead in their vehicles, many were forced to abandon their cars and run for their lives down the sole road through the mountain town.

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. "This fire moved so fast and grew so fast a lot of people got caught by it".
