Ventura county fire in California burns 65000 acres

Ventura county fire in California burns 65000 acres”

All South County schools chose to close Thursday due to the impacts of the Thomas Fire raging in nearby Ventura County, Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido said.

"There's fire all around the valley, so you gotta go", he said.

By 1:15 a.m., firefighters reported the fire had burned into a refinery near La Conchita and was within 10 yards of homes in that community, where a mandatory evacuation was already underway.

Dubbed the Rye Fire, the blaze began about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday near the 2500 block of Rye Canyon Loop. "Winds will continue to affect fire behavior by pushing the fire and keeping humidity low".

The Thomas Fire has expanded to 65,000 acres and still has zero percent containment as the blaze continues to rage Wednesday.

Millions of cellphones buzzed loudly Wednesday night from San Diego to Santa Barbara with a sound that usually means an Amber Alert, but this time meant a rare weather warning for strong winds making extreme fire danger.

Back in the beachside city of Ventura, the fire killed more than two dozen horses at a stable and had destroyed at least 150 structures, a number that was expected to get far bigger as firefighters are able to assess losses.
