Woolsey Fire in Ventura County quadruples overnight; 30,000 evacuated

An unknown number of homes and buildings in Paradise have been destroyed by the Camp Fire

A set of raging wildfires encroached on the small California city still reeling from a mass shooting Friday. The threat continues Friday morning, with millions of Californians under "red flag" warningsportending windy, arid and warm conditions that pose extreme fire risks.

Malibu has about 13,000 residents and lies along 21 miles (34 kilometers) of coast at the southern foot of the mountain range.

"There was really no firefight involved", said Capt. Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, explaining that crews gave up on attacking the flames and instead helped people evacuate.

Approximately 75,000 homes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties are under mandatory evacuations due to the Woolsey and Hill fires.

By Thursday evening, it had scorched up to 7,000 acres and sent residents of more than 1,200 homes fleeing, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The flames are now threatening coastal areas further south, fire officials said.

At least five people have died in burnt out cars as wildfires sweep across California. Los Angeles is prone to natural disasters as earthquakes are expected in the region, but with the drought this year and mighty fires, it's becoming even more unsafe to live in the area.

The Hill Fire is another battle firefighters in Ventura County are contending with.

Malibu itself - a city of about 12,000 people and known for beachside homes owned by celebrities and millionaires - was put under an evacuation order Friday morning.
