California wildfires destroy thousands of structures and force emergency evacuations

California wildfires destroy thousands of structures and force emergency evacuations

Following a TMZ report that Jenner's Malibu home burned down in the midst of the rapidly spreading 14,000-acre Woolsey Canyon wildfire in Ventura County, a rep for Jenner told ET earlier in the day: "She is safe but we have no information regarding the house".

Caitlyn's pad, which was featured on her reality show, sat on top of a ridge overlooking the Malibu beach area - and, unfortunately, it's the same area where the Woolsey fire is burning out of control.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for the Woolsey Fire south of the 101 Freeway to the coast - from the Ventura/LA County line east to Malibu Canyon Road, including areas in Malibu. The home, which overlooks the beach, has been hit by the elements before-last year, the roof was torn off when 60 miles per hour gusts of wind blew through the area.

A third brush fire in Griffith Park broke out Friday morning above the Los Angeles Zoo. She added that her husband, agent David Bugliari, was safe in NY and that her trainer was evacuating her horses.

"The whole hill's on fire", she said while crying.

The fire prompted the closure of all schools in the Las Virgenes Unified School District in Calabasas, as well as Viewpoint School, Montessori of Calabasas, Montessori of Calabasas Too and Muse School. People are working together to not only help others evacuate but to provide updates, rescue animals, and provide shelter. The flames have jumped the 101! Yellow areas represent the fire perimeter.

She wrote: 'Thank you to all the fearless firemen fighting the fire back home'. Despite the family being unharmed, their homes were not so lucky.

Combative Trump brawls with media and slams his own party
It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. One recent survey from Rasmussen, a generally Trump-friendly poll, found that approval number at 36 per cent.

Another added: 'Khloe, For your safety, Y'all need to evacuate, I'm watching ABC 7 and they're talking about it right now. Praying for all of you!'

She also wrote the caption "sending my prayers to everyone today". According to the Los Angeles Times, the fire has grown to 8,000 acres as is burning through Oak Park into Agoura Hills.

The couple are said to have evacuated their entire security team from the property.

The Butte County Sheriff's office confirmed that five people were killed trying to escape the blaze in their vehicles.

The full extent of the destruction is still unknown, but authorities believe up to 1,000 buildings have been destroyed - most of those in Paradise, a California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman said.

The Hill Fire had consumed 10,000 acres, or 15 square miles, according to Cal Fire, though the Ventura County Fire Department reported no injuries or structure losses at a Thursday night press conference.

Metro.co.uk have reached out to Caitlyn's reps for comment.
