'Doctor Strange' Director Loses Home in Woolsey Fire

The Woolsey blaze was also burning in parts of Los Angeles County, where mandatory evacuation orders were given Friday morning south of U.S. Highway 101, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said. In Northern California, a blaze visible by satellite consumed the town of Paradise on Thursday and had burned almost 110 square miles by Friday morning.

It has since been reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's property is now in danger of being destroyed as the fire has allegedly reached their home.

After making the announcement about his home on Twitter this morning, others were quick to offer their support for Derrickson, including The Haunting of Hill House creator, Mike Flanagan.

For Thousand Oaks, which had been considered one of the safest cities in the nation before a gunman massacred 12 people at a country music bar, the spasm of violence jolted the city's sense of security.

The fire began about 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Woolsey Canyon, east of Simi Valley. (Chico is about 90 miles north of Sacramento.) 35 mph winds are hampering efforts to contain the blaze, which has already destroyed the town of Paradise, burning more than 1,000 homes and the town hospital. Evacuating residents were being directed south of PCH toward Santa Monica, creating a snarl of vehicles along the normally scenic coastal route.

A source told TMZ on Friday evening that the "house went up in flames". According to Esri, it should be updated soon with pins for the Camp Fire and the fires in Los Angeles, both of which just broke out yesterday.

The fire also injured three firefighters but the total casualty picture was not yet clear. It burned in the same path as the 2013 Springs Fire that torched 24,000 acres before running into the Pacific Ocean.

Those who live there have been warned of an "imminent threat" to their safety, with thousands of people being urged to flee however they can.

The wildfire season a year ago was one of the most destructive and costly in history.

Approximately 75,000 homes are under evacuation orders throughout Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. Jerry Brown is out of the state, Ghilarducci said.

The fire overnight jumped the 101 Freeway in the western end of Los Angeles County, forcing a shutdown of the major artery after drivers in some cases were forced to make U-turns and drive the opposite direction to avoid flames.

California's Santa Ana winds have stoked the fires, causing the Woolsley blaze to double in size to 8,000 acres, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
