Thomas Fire prompts air quality concerns in portions of Santa Barbara Co

Thomas Fire prompts air quality concerns in portions of Santa Barbara Co

But never purple wind.

"We're full, we've taken in over 450 horses and four goats", Heidi Allyn, a stable assistant at the sprawling Los Angeles Equestrian Center, said Wednesday.

Los Angeles Mayor Erik Garcetti has declared a local state of emergency in the area affected by the Skirball fire, Deadline reported.

Satellite imagery from the wildfires burning in Southern California shows where the new hot spots are - the danger zones amid an expected resurgence of Santa Ana winds. Of course, this is near the UCLA campus, as well as notable golf courses Bel-Air Country Club and Riviera Country Club, which both served as hosts of the 2017 U.S. Amateur.

The winds, which blow westward from the California desert, were forecast to reach 130 kph on Thursday. "So, it's a real logistical problem".

Around 27,000 people in southern California have been forced to leave their homes because of wildfires.

That means resources are being poured into Southern California from the state and from federal government grants under Federal Emergency Management Agency.

As of Wednesday, Southwest Airlines did not have any plans to cancel or delay flights leaving from LAX.

But many people have been evacuated and many have already lost homes.

"It is sad", Keasler said. And inside it was fuzzy. "The entire town was pitch black".

Firefighters warned the fire was moving so fast they were unable to control it.

Member station KCLU says that firefighters have made progress, raising containment of the Thomas Fire, the largest of several, from zero to 5 percent.

The Missoula Fire Department was sending two engines.

Among the homes threatened in the Bel Air region is Moraga Estate and Vineyard, owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

INSKEEP: Mary, thanks very much.

"We got knots in our stomach coming back up here", Kermode said.

The fires have have now crossed over the main coastal highway and reached the Pacific Ocean, on America's West Coast. "Authorities said they were helping residents of five assisted-living facilities evacuate, while people at Ojai Hospital were advised to shelter in place".

The massive blazes showed no signs of stopping as roaring winds fueled flames that feasted on the tinder-dry conditions in the region.

John Keasler, 65, and his wife Linda raced out of their apartment building as the flames approached, then stood and watched the fire burn it to the ground.

"Everything burned", Marolyn Romero-Sim said as she sat on a cot weeping at an evacuation center at the sprawling Ventura County Fairgrounds.
