1 Dead, Thousands Evacuated from Calif. Wildfire

California wildfire: Thousands evacuated in Ventura County

Strong "Santa Ana" winds were making the job of firefighters more difficult as they struggled to contain a fierce outbreak of wildfires near Los Angeles that has triggered evacuation orders for 200,000 people and destroyed nearly 200 homes. The fire was at 0% containment as of Tuesday night.

The current winds were predicted well in advance by the National Weather Service, which issued Red Flag warnings for critical fire danger starting late Sunday. Is the child trying to make this poor, infirm woman squeeze her feet into some plastic Payless heels on her deathbed? "Hard Candy Christmas" is inconceivably depressing if you're a kid - "Maybe I'll hit the bars"! - but as an adult, it's the realist's choice of carol. Our dog is safe.

MCEVERS: So just tell us what it's like where you are. "So many memories - Christmases, Thanksgiving".

"We haven't gotten in the business of resurrecting dead vegetation", Spelman said.

But they're going to be OK. "It's December. We have fires all year round now".

He couldn't fathom the destruction.

The difference between then and now is population, dense housing and location, Patzert and Spelman noted.

"I thought we were done", she said.

Fanned by gusts of wind of up to 70mph, the fire spread rapidly, leading to the evacuation of at least 1,000 homes across the county. It was his son calling to warn him a wildfire was heading right toward him.

"We expect to be out here all week fighting and containing this fire", LA Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

"Everyone is healthy. Everyone is out". All the animals were out. I chased the chickens out this morning. "And there's no roasted chickens".

How many were without electricity?

At some points, the fire even jumped the 210 Freeway and pressed down on the area's rural equestrian neighborhoods.

The site allows first responders and the public to zoom in on their area and get updated information regarding fires, wind and surface fuel conditions.

The Thomas Fire has burned at least 150 structures, including a large apartment complex and a psychiatric facility called Vista Del Mar Hospital, the Los Angeles Times reported. But winds are expected to die down this evening and tomorrow, and that should be helpful in getting the fire under control. Officials warned of extreme fire danger in the region hours before the blaze erupted.

"Oh my god, just devastation for these people", said Leticia Broida, an employee. Mandatory evacuations were ordered in nearby areas.

Firefighters battle the Rye Fire along Newell Ranch Road in Santa Clarita on Tuesday, Dec. 05, 2017.

The wildfire swept into the city of Ventura early Tuesday, burning 50,000 acres, destroying homes and forcing more than 27,000 people to evacuate.
