Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu home burns down in Woolsey Fire

Caitlyn Jenner’s Malibu home burns down in Woolsey Fire

LA County Fire tweeted: "Fire has jumped the 101 fwy near Chesebro and is headed to Ocean Mandatory Evacuations, 101 Fwy to the coast between Las Virgenes Cyn /Malibu Cyn Rd.to the LA County line".

A second fire has been burning in the Santa Rosa Valley east of Camarillo, west of Simi Valley near Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks. Early Friday morning, CalFire said it had burned 10,000 acres, or about 15 square miles.

After making the announcement about his home on Twitter this morning, others were quick to offer their support for Derrickson, including The Haunting of Hill House creator, Mike Flanagan.

The fast-moving Hill fires started near the community of Thousand Oaks, which was in the midst of grappling with the Wednesday night shooting that killed 12 at the Borderline nightclub.

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.

Another neighbor said the fire was "like a freight train" and praised firefighters for saving so many homes.

Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had grown to almost 110 square miles (285 square kilometers).

Paradise resident Whitney Vaughn described the chaotic evacuations on roads lined with burning trees.




A source told TMZ on Friday evening that the "house went up in flames". Evacuations in Hidden Hills and all portions in the City of Los Angeles, have been revised from mandatory to voluntary.

The fire also injured three firefighters but the total casualty picture was not yet clear. "There's nothing much left standing", said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman Scott Maclean.

Authorities fear the fire, fueled by strong winds, could reach Chico - a city of 90,000 people where many Butte County families already have evacuated to shelters.

The Camp Fire in the northern part of the state has burned through 20,000 acres, while the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura counties quadrupled in size overnight.

A firefighter keeps watch as the wildfire burns a home near Malibu Lake in Malibu, Calif., Friday, Nov. 9, 2018. Highway 70, located near the wildfire, was closed down and the California Highway Patrol asked drivers to avoid the road.

The wildfire season previous year was one of the most destructive and costly in history.

The Los Angeles and Ventura County fire departments say multiple buildings have been destroyed or damage, but exact numbers are not available early Friday.

Wind gusts of 50 to 70 miles per hour (80 to 113 kph) were expected in the mountains of Ventura County and up to 50 miles per hour in its valleys and coastal areas, the NWS said. Jerry Brown is out of the state, Ghilarducci said.
