Personnel on that strike team were made up of some firefighters who had only days earlier left the front lines of the Canyon fire in Corona.

That agreement is put to work through FIRESCOPE, a system developed after Southern California experienced a series of catastrophic fires in 1970.

The fire, in addition to destroying buildings, has damaged about 180 structures and ranks as the fifth-largest wildfire on record in California, according to Cal Fire.

California has spent the past eight days battling wildfires.

"I'm sending lots of love and gratitude to the fire department and sheriffs". Ventura County and surrounding areas are under an elevated fire outlook through Tuesday. Temperatures will remain in the upper 70s and low 80s for the week, as humidity remains low.

Warnings: A "red flag warning" for Los Angeles and Ventura counties has been extended into Wednesday evening, the National Weather Service said.

Evacuations continued Wednesday for the seaside enclaves of Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria and the inland agricultural town of Fillmore.

It has blackened more than 368 square miles (953 square km) in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, an area larger than New York City.

The Thomas Fire has so far destroyed 904 structures, including 691 homes. The costs of fighting the blaze have topped $34 million.

Elsewhere, fire officials announced that a cooking fire at a homeless encampment sparked a blaze last week that destroyed six homes in the Bel Air neighbourhood of Los Angeles. It has burned 15,619 acres and was 95 percent contained late Sunday.

Some of the other fires burning over the past week in San Diego and Los Angeles counties have been largely brought under control. More firefighters were to have deployed Monday.

Lilac Fire: This fast-moving fire has consumed 4,100 acres since it ignited Thursday in San Diego County.

And retired tennis player Jimmy Connors said the Thomas Fire was also threatening his home and tweeted that firefighters were "working tirelessly".

Some of those firefighters had just finished battling blazes closer to home. There are few places where fire crews can take a stand.

She offered free coffee to the firefighters and evacuees who trickled in. That included Ellen DeGeneres, who said her own home is threatened. Officials have said they worry the blaze could worsen because of wind gusts and predicted dry conditions for the next week.
