:( :( major vibes

Pushed by powerful Santa Ana winds, a fire spread with explosive speed to 31,000 acres Monday night and early Tuesday in Southern California's Ventura County, forcing thousands to evacuate in the dark.


The fire began north of Santa Paula on Monday evening and spread into the edges of Ventura, a city of more than 100,000 people situated on the Pacific coast, the county sheriff's office said.

About 150 buildings have been destroyed, the sheriff's office said, and more than 7,700 homes in Ventura and Santa Paula were under mandatory evacuation as fire officials warned the powerful winds could push flames further into Ventura.

One person died in a rollover car crash while trying to evacuate, Ventura County Fire chief Mark Lorenzen said at a press briefing Monday night.

"The fire is still out of control and structures are threatened throughout the fire area," the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said on a local emergency preparedness website. "Due to the intensity of the fire, crews are having trouble making access, but there are multiple reports of structures on fire."

Sheriff's deputies were driving in neighborhoods and knocking on doors to warn residents to evacuate.

The fire also burned down power lines, causing widespread outages in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties that affected more than 260,000 people, said Susan Cox, a spokeswoman for Southern California Edison.

The Thomas Fire pushes toward East Ventura on Monday night.

The brush fire, called the Thomas Fire, was reported at Steckel Park, just north of Santa Paula, around 6:30 p.m. local time, according to initial reports to the Ventura County Fire Department. It ignited as officials had earlier warned of extreme fire danger in the area due to the Santa Ana winds, blowing as fast as 40 to 60 mph.

Within a few hours, the fire jumped to thousands of acres as winds carried its embers. The fire engulfed dry chaparral and climbed through steep terrain.

As the fire spread, the nearby hills glowed a fiery orange as residents in Santa Paula threw a few of their belongings into cars to evacuate, according to video footage from CNN affiliates.

Because it was night and heavy winds were blowing, authorities couldn't use the eight air tankers and six helicopters to help battle the wildfire.

"We'll have them as soon as light is out, and they can safely fly," Lorenzen said.

More than 500 firefighters were battling the blaze Tuesday morning.

Officials shut State Route 150, between Ojai and Santa Paula, due to the fires. All students at the Thomas Aquinas College, a private Catholic college in Santa Paula, were evacuated Monday night, the school said on Twitter. The college and the Santa Paula and Ventura unified school districts announced their closures Tuesday.

Two evacuation centers were opened for residents who had to leave their homes.

Hours into the disaster, California's Office of Emergency Services secured a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency early Tuesday to fight the fire.

My dad was evacuated. Last I heard this morning, he was on the beach watching up the hill in horror. I would post a pic of his extravagant home, which is likely destroyed now, but someone has clearly stolen my Imgur account and locked me out. I hope Imgur can get my son's birth pictures from there. They were lost in a hard drive failure a few months ago, but I didn't worry about it because they were on Imgur. If you know a hacker, please stab them in the dick or pussy #feminism.

I am still in my house, but many friends have lost everything.
I have my rv trailer hooked up and can split immediately if needed.
My workplace has a house burning 1/4 mile from it.
It has gone around my location somehow, but I am watering my roof to protect from falling embers.
the winds are 35 mph gusts and the fire traveled 20 miles in 2 hours last night. we were awoken at 1 AM,
and the hills above the entire town were on fire.
we packed bags, attached the trailer to the car, and have been on standby ever since.
I am working on 2 hours of sleep.

They seem to have knocked a lot of the fires down. We'll get a better assessment when it gets dark.

it has moved past us, unless there is a major wind shift.

I know 5 people that lost their houses.
All up on the hill in the 'not even close to cheap' area.

Vibes. And glad you are safe right now

Do they have any sirens there to wake people up? We have tornado sirens everywhere around here, but didn't know if they were common everywhere

Just great. Now that hill where the Getty is, is on fire. The 405 and parts of Mullholand are closed. the Getty itself appears to be ok (for now).

I know he's alive from my sister talking to him, but we haven't had an update since yesterday around noon. His house was right where all the fire was, overlooking the Channel Islands, so I'm sure he's not very happy right now.

Now it is headed north to Carpenteria and turned around from Santa Paula and headed towards Fillmore.

Now there is a fire in Camarillo.

I am starting to think serial arsonist during a Santa Ana wind event.

(Anyone not informed on Santa Anas, the entire area has 35-50 mile winds that shift directions constantly)

And my dad's home is evidently still standing with minimal damage! I guess the guy who stayed behind with a water hose paid off. It is a beautiful home from the 1920's overlooking the Channel Islands. There's no cell service or power and the place is basically a wasteland, so they're camping out in a hotel for the time being.
