Two fast-moving wildfires that exploded in the hills of Southern California are forcing thousands of evacuations, including the entire city of Malibu and a sprawling naval base.
At the moment the fire is in Butte county, powering through Paradise City and under watch from the Paradise Police Department.
Sheriff's officials said earlier that five people were found dead in vehicles that were torched by flames in the same area in the town of Paradise.
Multiple injuries have been reported by both civilians and firefighters, Cal Fire spokesman John Gaddie said.
Authorities issued mandatory evacuation orders for more than 50,000 people in the scenic area in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, including some residents of Chico, population 93,000, near Paradise. This means some phone numbers are down. According to Earther, "the nine worst fires the state have seen all burned at least 1,000 buildings, with the top three topping 2,000".
Wildfires also erupted in Southern California.
The nearest evacuation center is at Palisades High School, located at 15777 Bowdoin St, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.
Early Friday, the city of Malibu was ordered to evacuate as a wildfire approached the coastal area.
The mapping flight at 6 p.m. Thursday determined that the fire had burned over 54,000 acres, but the satellite data from 8 hours later showed that it had increased substantially since then, possibly as much as an additional 15,000 acres.

Powered by Santa Ana winds and dry air, the Woolsey Fire - which erupted Thursday afternoon in Ventura County before it raced into Los Angeles County - chewed its way through brush and into neighborhoods of Westlake Village, Malibu, and Oak Park.

"It's been a roller coaster", one Oak Park resident told CBS2, explaining he chose to stay behind and watch over his neighbors' homes in the area of Kellwood Ct. and Churchwood Dr. and had the utmost faith in firefighters.
The Woolsey Fire, broke out on Thursday, not too far from the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people enjoying country line dancing at college night before killing himself.
Wind gusts of 50 to 70 miles per hour (80 to 113 kph) were expected in the mountains of Ventura County and up to 50 miles per hour in its valleys and coastal areas, the NWS said.
