Tens of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate, but there were no injuries to residents or firefighters, said Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Dave Richardson.

One of the fires broke out Thursday north-west of Los Angeles and roared south, jumping the United States 101 freeway early Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

Also burning in Ventura County was the Hill Fire, which had scorched about 6,000 acres (2,428 hectares) on Friday morning, Lorenzen said.

- Crews were battling multiple wind-driven brush fires on Friday, leaving several structures damaged, forcing thousand of homes to evacuate and closing some area schools and roadways.

The blaze has spread rapidly overnight, fanned by strong winds, and has jumped Highway 101, a major route west of Los Angeles.

"It was insane, because when we were sitting in traffic people were panicking", she said.

So far, 14,000 acres of land have been burned by the fires and that number keeps growing. (Reed Saxon/AP) Firefighters push a vehicle from a garage as the Woolsy fire burning a home near Malibu Lake in Malibu, Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

The Woolsey fire was one of three ravaging the state, with the northern California town of Paradise in Butte County largely destroyed overnight. "I pray everyone is safe", she wrote.

Cal Fire Captain - John Gaddie - said the town of just 27,000 was "destroyed" by the flames.

Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had grown to almost 110 square miles (285 square kilometers).

Early Friday morning, the wildfire jumped the 101 in Ventura County into Agoura Hills, closing a 4-mile stretch of the highway.

Residents posted on social media to share their views of the flames almost consuming the hillside in the Newbury Park area of western Thousand Oaks.

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".
