Over 1000 firefighters battling California wildfires

Wildfire forces thousands to flee homes north of Los Angeles

The fire came with a fury sparing only their lives.

Franken's office announced the speech in a bare bones tweet that belied the dramatic drop in support from congressional Democrats in the wake of a seventh accusation of sexual misconduct levied against the Minnesota politician. "Now that we're back here, maybe we're thinking about some of the stuff we've lost".

Firefighters were seen removing artwork from opulent homes in the exclusive neighbourhood as small fires continued to burn.

Powerful winds can push existing fires but also help fan new ones.

Calmer overnight winds Thursday helped crews protect the Ventura County resort town of Ojai (OH'hi), where most of the 7,000 residents are under evacuation orders.

"We are still in the middle of an aggressive and active firefight on the ground", said Robert Welsbie, spokesman for the Ventura Fire Department.

Teams made up of more than 1,000 firefighters are attempting to contain the fires igniting across the region.

Rye Fire: As of Tuesday night, the Rye Fire was five per cent contained after charring more than 2,000 hectares in Santa Clarita.

High winds meant the fire swept through tens of thousands of acres in a matter of hours. But never purple wind.

Officials hope the electronic push will keep the region alert and the death toll from the week's fires at zero. Located 60 miles (97km) northwest of Los Angeles in Ventura County that fire spread from 500 acres Monday night to 50,000 acres the following morning. It has totally destroyed four structures and damaged 11 others.

N95 masks are available to people in the cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria. The blaze was so close to the road that both directions of the freeway were closed, and homes were evacuated in Bel-Air. She said a patch of brush about 30 feet by 30 feet was scorched.

The nearby Getty Centre museum shut down for the day to protect its art collection from smoke damage. Instead, the SAS twitter account informed a passenger that they would be notified via text message of any changes or cancelations. Firefighters rushed to attack the fires before winds picked up again. "But that's about it".
