However, a spokesman for Disneyland - which attracts 44,000 visitors a day - insisted there are now no changes to the operation of the parks, and everything remains open.

Gov. Jerry Brown issued an emergency proclamation for Orange County late Monday, freeing up state resources to help with battling the fire. The blaze was impacting 5,000 structures, fire officials said.

Officials have evacuated 1,000 homes and freeways have been shut down.

Motorists were advised to take the Orange (57) Freeway to the Pomona (60) Freeway, California Highway Patrol Officer Florentino Olivera said. "It's only going to get worse", he said. "It's not under control by any means".

Fire crews had not been able to contain any portion of the blaze Monday evening, said Sgt. Daron Wyatt, an Anaheim police spokesman, and strong winds were making it hard to figure out where the flames might jump next.

Fire remains at 7,500 acres with a jump in containment to 25%, up from 5%.

OCFA and Anaheim Fire have units at the scene. Strong winds caused over a dozen fires, with almost 90,000 acres on fire. Evacuation, road closure info for Anaheim Hills fireCalifornia Gov.

He says numerous people have been injured and a number of residents are also missing as 14 large fires burn. Eastbound lanes of the 91 at Weir Canyon Road are also closed.

The strongest winds in Southern California are expected Monday through midday.

Smoke and ash have been reported in portions of Orange County and western areas of Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles County Fire Department sent some 80 firefighters grouped into three strike teams.

Firefighters protect a structure off in Calistoga, California.

There's concern that the fire could spread into Cleveland National Forest.

Smoke rises from a home that was destroyed by a fire in the hills east of Napa, California. Authorities said that at least 10 people have been killed and thousands have fled the area.

At least nine schools in the area have been closed as a precautionary measure. Very low relative humidity, coupled with the strong and gusty winds will pose a critical fire weather threat.
