The combined fires have already burned tens of thousands of acres, spreading across the 101 Freeway and causing the city of Malibu to undergo mandatory evacuation.

Tens of thousands of people are under mandatory evacuation orders and Palley says that the fires in the Santa Monica Mountains, above Malibu, have developed so fast that numerous roads there have become impassable even to firefighters.

The Ventura County fire department said Friday that 75,000 homes were ordered evacuated in the two adjoining counties west of Los Angeles.

At least 30 homes have been destroyed.

A raging Southern California wildfire has triggered a mandatory evacuation order for the entire beachside city of Malibu.

Early Friday morning, the wildfire jumped the 101 in Ventura County into Agoura Hills, closing a 4-mile stretch of the highway. "That fire from the second it started was off to the races", said Ken Pimlott, director of Cal Fire.

Celebrity website TMZ reported that the Malibu ridge home of Caitlyn Jenner, America's best-known transgender person, was destroyed by the flames on Friday.

Writing to her 21million followers, the star said: 'I cannot sleep!

It had burned 8,000 acres and there was no containment or expected containment, according to a Ventura County Fire Department update at 3:30 a.m. Area hospitals have evacuated and all of Butte County schools are closed Friday. Fire engines were not able to reach the fire, and firefighters were forced to hike in on foot and hose down vulnerable areas, while a firefighting helicopter hovered overhead.

"Evacuated last night. Bleak House and the collection may be endangered but the gift of life remains", del Toro, director of Oscar best picture victor "The Shape of Water", tweeted on Friday. She had been filming aerial shots in her private plane earlier for her Instagram Stories and realized her own home was threatened.

"There's nothing left standing", said Scott Maclean, the state's forestry and fire protection spokesman.

"Fire is now burning out of control and heading into populated areas of Malibu", the city advised residents at 12:27 p.m. Last night it covered just 2,000 acres.

Pepperdine University on Friday closed its Malibu and Calabasas campuses because of the approaching blaze. Her deck provided a strong vantage point to monitor the spread of the fire. A brush fire that was first reported at 2:00pm on Thursday afternoon, it's quickly grown in size as well.

As of Friday morning, evacuation centers were set up at Thousand Oaks High School, at 2323 North Moorpark Road; the Borchard Community Center at 190 Reino Road in Newbury Park; and Camarillo Community Center at 1605 Burnley St.

While no homes or businesses have been lost due to the fast-moving blaze, a number of RVs and outbuildings have been burned and a firefighter suffered a minor injury, authorities said.
