Long Beach Fire Department strike team sent to battle Hill Fire in Ventura • Long Beach Post

Five people are reported dead in the Camp Fire, which reports indicate has completely destroyed the town of Paradise, California. The house was also featured on her reality show "I Am Cait".

The first of the fires broke out on Thursday, northwest of Los Angeles, and roared south, with an estimated 75,000 homes evacuated in western Los Angeles County and eastern Ventura County.

Whitney Vaughan described a scene of panic and terror as she recalled her narrow escape from her Paradise home on Thursday morning.

The house is said to be 3,500 square feet with 4-bedrooms, and overlooks the Malibu beach west of Los Angeles.

"The whole hill's on fire", she said while crying.

The fire prompted the closure of all schools in the Las Virgines Unified School District in Calabasas, as well as Viewpoint School, Montessori of Calabasas, Montessori of Calabasas Too and Muse School, the city of Calabasas announced this morning.

Bass evacuated his family and then returned to the fire to help rescue several disabled residents, including a man trying to carry his bedridden wife to safety.

The mother-of-one tweeted: 'Fuck! I need an evacuation update please'. Encroaching flames, despite the near-constant threat of fire in the bone-dry state, presented an entirely different hazard.

"Such handsome words. And Yes thank you to all first responders!" a third user added.

"In the past few years, just the way fires have moved, firefighters have had to help with evacuations before they can go back in to put out the fire", Cal Fire spokesperson Lynne Tolmachoff said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I was scared, my kids were scared, they were crying". If you can, turn on ABC 7.

Someone else commented: 'Just Leave!

She also wrote the caption "sending my prayers to everyone today".

It's been reported that Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian all evacuated their homes Thursday night.

The couple are said to have evacuated their entire security team from the property.

The Hill Fire ignited around 2 p.m. local time in the area of Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa, according to Ventura County Fire Department officials.

"There's nothing much left standing", said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman Scott Maclean.

At least five people have died in the wildfires, with the Butte County Sheriff's Office confirming that the victims were found in the same area in Paradise.

And in part of Malibu itself - a city of about 12,000 people known for beachside homes owned by celebrities and millionaires - a voluntary evacuation advisory was issued Friday morning.

A rep for Kardashian did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
