Fire officials ordered the evacuation of large swaths of the beachside city of Malibu Friday as a raging fire jumped the US 101 Freeway west of Los Angeles and raced toward the sea and the community famed for its surf and celebrity homes. There are Red Flag warnings in effect for parts of Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

The 101 freeway is closed as the both the Hill and Woolsey fires have jumped the freeway near Camarillo as well as in Agoura Hills near Malibu.

Also burning in Ventura County was the Hill Fire, which grew to 10,000 acres by Thursday night, officials said. It burned in the same path as the 2013 Springs Fire that torched 24,000 acres before running into the Pacific Ocean.

The director of the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services says fires across California have forced 157,000 people from their homes. Residents in affluent Malibu are the latest to be at risk from scalding flames caused by the Woolsey Fire, spreading southwards from Los Angeles.

Kardashian also shared a video of several fire trucks driving down her street, and made sure to share her appreciation for their efforts.

It quickly spread southwest toward Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks, the community still reeling from a mass shooting on Wednesday night, before making its way to the coast. "I pray everyone is safe", she on wrote Instagram along with thanks for the responding firefighters and requests for prayers for Calabasas.

Friday morning the fire was burning to the outer edges of Chico, a city of 93,000 people about a 90-mile drive north of Sacramento.

With their habitat ablaze, wildlife have been also forced out of their homes by the Woolsey Fire. Video from the scene shows firefighters battling to extinguish burning buildings, as the sky glowed orange and filled with smoke.

The fire broke out Thursday northwest of Los Angeles and roared southward, jumping the US 101 freeway early Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

If the United States had not granted waivers to China and some of the other countries, they would have also ignored the sanctions. The US has been gradually re-imposing sanctions, but analysts say this latest round is by far the most significant.

The Woolsey Fire broke out about 2:25 p.m. Thursday, pushed by strong Santa Ana winds which prevented fire commanders from ordering aerial assaults in the early morning hours.

The fire has already jumped Highway 101 and at this time more than 75,000 homes are already under evacuation in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

A second evacuation center for animals was opened this morning at Hansen Dam, 11770 Foothill Blvd.in Lake View Terrace, after the evacuation center at Pierce College in Woodland Hills reached capacity.

Malibu itself - a city of about 12,000 people and known for beachside homes owned by celebrities and millionaires - was put under an evacuation order Friday morning.
