Strong blustery winds combined with dry conditions have helped the blaze spread, after weeks without rain and low humidity at the height of the wildfire season in north California.

More than 400 firefighters from Ventura County, Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles and Cal Fire were battling the brush fire. The trendy beach resort has about 13,000 residents and 21 miles of gorgeous coastline.

One fire that broke out near the northeast corner of Los Angeles has roared westward, jumped US 101 in the Calabasas area and is surging up the Santa Monica Mountains.

Overnight, the so-called Woolsey Fire reached the city of Agoura Hills and raced through Oak Park, in the adjacent Ventura County. No injuries have been reported.

Dettorre is concerned that as the fire crosses the freeway "it will make its historic and typical run all the way down Pacific Coast Highway".

At least five people have died in wildfires spreading across California that have destroyed thousands of structures and sent people fleeing as towns and forests throughout the state burn. Residents in affluent Malibu are the latest to be at risk from scalding flames caused by the Woolsey Fire, spreading southwards from Los Angeles.

Christy Dawn Little abandoned her Oak Park home, northeast of Thousand Oaks, around 11 p.m. PT.

"I feel very vulnerable posting this but I feel I should", Chatfield wrote on Facebook.

Cal State Channel Islands has ordered a mandatory evacuation of the campus due to the fire, and all classes and activities have been canceled this evening, according to a news release from campus officials.

Authorities on Thursday issued mandatory evacuation orders in rural areas of Northern California, the AP reports.

It appeared City were capable of scoring nearly at will and a slick move saw them make it three in the 18th minute. City needed only five minutes to take the lead against Southampton, Wesley Hoedt putting through his own net.

Firefighters are challenged by residents moving about evacuation areas and high traffic as they follow the fire front.

Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott said a "very significant, unsafe weather pattern" would continue through the end of the weekend. Almost 2,300 firefighters are battling the flames, but as of Friday morning, it was still zero percent contained. One evacuation center was even forced to close down as the flames spread.

Just before 3 a.m. Friday, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said the fire had burned about 8,000 acres and was at 0 percent containment.

Howling Santa Ana winds were driving the Woolsey and Hill fires.

The Los Angeles and Ventura County fire departments say multiple buildings have been destroyed or damage, but exact numbers are not available early Friday.
