Hundreds flee as fires randomly take, spare California homes

"All I had time to do was get up, get dressed and leave and help others", said Terry, who with more than 600 others spent the night on a Red Cross cot in what is normally a livestock center, with her Maltese-poodle mix pup by her side.

"They can come to my house". The fires were under investigation and no causes had been found.

In Los Angeles, the Creek Fire went from 4,000 acres to 11,000 in a matter of hours Tuesday.

"They've died down slightly, but they're going to increase again (Tuesday) evening, so it's kind of like a seesaw", McLean said. As I was reared in the evangelical church, I am perhaps behind on the intricacies of an altar boy's duties.

More than 1,100 firefighters helped battle the erratic fire that has burned 150 structures, although Cal Fire Incident Commander Todd Derum told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that he fears hundreds more have been burned but just not confirmed by firefighters yet.

The fire-related power outages on Monday night and Tuesday led to the cancellation of the Channel League girls water polo opener between crosstown rivals San Marcos and Santa Barbara at the San Marcos pool.

In LA County, television shows with large outdoor sets including HBO's "Westworld" and CBS's "S.W.A.T." halted production of because of worries about the safety of cast and crew.

The fire started north of Santa Paula and burned into the Ventura city limits, pushed by strong east winds.

Some 7,000 homes from Santa Paula to Ventura were evacuated. He was grateful to find it untouched the next day.

In addition to prompting hasty evacuations, the fires shut down two freeways for hours and sent heavy, acrid smoke billowing over the Los Angeles area, creating a health hazard for millions. "The rain added some grasses and allowed the fire to travel much quicker to the more dense areas of brush".

"Fuel. Ignition. Meteorology. Each component of the formula are off the charts this year", said Bill Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Lisa Kermode ignored the first evacuation alert that buzzed on her phone when it said the fire was 15 miles (24 kilometres) away from her home.

The fire is currently estimated at 50,500 acres (20,437 hectares) without containment.

L.A. County Deputy Fire Chief David Richardson described the unpredictable conditions that firefighters are facing as they attempt to contain the blaze.

"We got knots in our stomach coming back up here", Kermode told the AP. "We are all packed".

More than 150 structures, including a 60-unit apartment complex, have been destroyed by the Thomas Fire and more than 3,000 structures are threatened, officials said.

The so-called Rye Fire, located in Castaic and just north of the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park, has taken over 5,000 acres.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has granted fire management assistance with the mitigation, management and control of the Thomas Fire.

How many people have been displaced?

The college said that all its 350 students and staff had been evacuated.
