    'Extreme' fires in Southern California devour Murdoch’s estate

    High winds and dry conditions are fueling four separate brushfires in Los Angeles, California. Tens of thousands of acres of land and 150 homes have burned down so far. Among the casualties was media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s estate.

    The affluent neighborhood of Bel Air fell victim to the Skirball fire. The flames consumed half a dozen properties, including the $28 million estate owned by the 21st Century Fox executive chairman. The 13-acre Moraga Vineyard is “the only commercial vineyard in Los Angeles,” according to NBC.

    The destruction of Murdoch’s home prompted a flurry of snide tweets critical of the Fox News executive and his stance on climate change.

    The fire also threatened properties belonging to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and pop superstar Beyonce.

    “Purple” alerts were called for LA-Venture County, Orange County-Inland Empire and San Diego, while a “marginal” alert was issued for Santa Barbara. An extreme alert means that fires have extreme growth, will burn very intensely and will be uncontrollable.

    The fire department said there was no way to contain the fires right now and that they will continue to burn through Saturday.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said more than 230,000 people have been forced from their homes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Around 260 public and charter schools were closed on Thursday and will remain closed on Friday.

    I live in Oceanside near the Vista line. We are listed this evening on a possible evacuation. Fires justwest of the I-15 in the Bonsall area burned some horse farms. Some horses were lost. The wind is really bad in that area, as well as Fallbrook, a small town in the hills there. We are on the watch for now and praying the wind drops.

    Word of advice, even though you are on "alert" have what you most want, have it packed and ready to go. Some here did not do that because CalFire said they weren't in any danger. 30 minutes later their home was gone. Been there!

    P.S. Winds forecasted to be extreme until Sunday - 3 days way!

    California fires: Two people burned in new blaze

    By Eliott C. McLaughlin, Nicole Chavez, Paul Vercammen and Steve Almasy, CNN
    Updated 12:15 AM ET, Fri December 8, 2017

    Story highlights
    141,000 acres burned in six large wildfires in California
    "Honestly, the firefighters are taking a beating," official says
    Carpinteria, California (CNN)With weary firefighters continuing their assault on several major wildfires wreaking devastation across Southern California, two new blazes fired up Thursday, adding to the region's smoke-filled misery.

    So far, 141,000 acres have burned in the six large wildfires in the state this week, according to Cal Fire officials.
    Two people were burned in one new hot spot, known as the Lilac Fire, which was about 45 miles north of San Diego. Officials didn't release the nature of the injuries to the burn victims nor give their conditions.
    The 4,100-acre fire is moving at an "extremely rapid rate," and burning west toward the Vista and Oceanside communities, officials said.
    A total of 20 structures were destroyed, according to Cal Fire. Many of those were mobile homes in a community next to where the fire started, said Ron Lane, the deputy chief administrative officer for San Diego County.
    To the north in Ventura County, the numbers were much more ominous. The four-day old Thomas Fire had burned 115,000 acres and destroyed 439 buildings, damaging 85 others.
    Another new fire, just to the north of the Lilac Fire, had consumed 300 acres. That blaze, called the Liberty Fire, is 10% contained.
    The wildfires are testing the stamina of firefighters and military personnel, who have been laboring almost nonstop. On top of exhaustion from the long hours, they're also trying to stave off the effects of smoke inhalation and the airborne embers irritating their eyes.
    At least 190,000 residents have been evacuated as 5,700 firefighters work to contain the blazes, Cal Fire officials said.

    "Honestly, the firefighters are taking a beating, but we have to acknowledge the residents because they're taking a beating, too, but they're cooperating with our orders," Thomas Kruschke, spokesman for the Ventura County Fire Department, said earlier.
    See photos of the fierce wildfires in Southern California
    The state National Guard's 146th Airlift Wing out of Oxnard has also joined the fight, even though roughly 50 of the National Guardsmen involved had to be evacuated themselves, said spokeswoman Maj. Kimberly Holman. Three lost their homes in the blazes, she said.
    The fires have pushed 110,000 Californians from their homes. Compounding problems Thursday were dry weather and merciless winds, with gusts predicted to reach the strength of a Category 1 hurricane in mountainous areas.


    http://ix.cnn.io/dailygraphics/graph...ic-desktop.jpg

    Almost half of the total number of firefighters are assigned to the massive Thomas Fire alone, officials said. Officials have shut down hundreds of schools spanning at least 16 districts.
    It could go down as one of the most destructive fires in state history, and at one point, spread over 31,000 acres in the span of about nine hours -- roughly an acre a second. At that rate, it would have consumed New York's Central Park in about 15 minutes. The plume from the fire stretches 1,000 miles into the Pacific Ocean.
    The fire is the most destructive ever in December (due to the number of buildings destroyed), according to Cal Fire records posted online.

    Carpinteria, California (CNN)With weary firefighters continuing their assault on several major wildfires wreaking devastation across Southern California, two new blazes fired up Thursday, adding to the region's smoke-filled misery.

    So far, 141,000 acres have burned in the six large wildfires in the state this week, according to Cal Fire officials.
    Two people were burned in one new hot spot, known as the Lilac Fire, which was about 45 miles north of San Diego. Officials didn't release the nature of the injuries to the burn victims nor give their conditions.
    The 4,100-acre fire is moving at an "extremely rapid rate," and burning west toward the Vista and Oceanside communities, officials said.
    A total of 20 structures were destroyed, according to Cal Fire. Many of those were mobile homes in a community next to where the fire started, said Ron Lane, the deputy chief administrative officer for San Diego County.
    To the north in Ventura County, the numbers were much more ominous. The four-day old Thomas Fire had burned 115,000 acres and destroyed 439 buildings, damaging 85 others.
    Another new fire, just to the north of the Lilac Fire, had consumed 300 acres. That blaze, called the Liberty Fire, is 10% contained.
    The wildfires are testing the stamina of firefighters and military personnel, who have been laboring almost nonstop. On top of exhaustion from the long hours, they're also trying to stave off the effects of smoke inhalation and the airborne embers irritating their eyes.
    At least 190,000 residents have been evacuated as 5,700 firefighters work to contain the blazes, Cal Fire officials said.

    "Honestly, the firefighters are taking a beating, but we have to acknowledge the residents because they're taking a beating, too, but they're cooperating with our orders," Thomas Kruschke, spokesman for the Ventura County Fire Department, said earlier.

    The state National Guard's 146th Airlift Wing out of Oxnard has also joined the fight, even though roughly 50 of the National Guardsmen involved had to be evacuated themselves, said spokeswoman Maj. Kimberly Holman. Three lost their homes in the blazes, she said.
    The fires have pushed 110,000 Californians from their homes. Compounding problems Thursday were dry weather and merciless winds, with gusts predicted to reach the strength of a Category 1 hurricane in mountainous areas.

    Almost half of the total number of firefighters are assigned to the massive Thomas Fire alone, officials said. Officials have shut down hundreds of schools spanning at least 16 districts.
    It could go down as one of the most destructive fires in state history, and at one point, spread over 31,000 acres in the span of about nine hours -- roughly an acre a second. At that rate, it would have consumed New York's Central Park in about 15 minutes. The plume from the fire stretches 1,000 miles into the Pacific Ocean.
    The fire is the most destructive ever in December (due to the number of buildings destroyed), according to Cal Fire records posted online.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday declared a state of emergency in California due to raging wildfires that have destroyed hundreds of structures and forced thousands from their homes.

    In declaring the emergency, Trump ordered the release of federal assistance to bolster the local response to the wildfires in Southern California, the White House said in a statement.

    Thanks for the prayers, they worked. The wind has died down for today, they are probably working like heck to get a handle on it before the wind comes up again. Have to take my Mom to the doctor, just a check up, but she is in Fallbrook. Highway 56 that goes there is closed, so am going to go on Camp Pendleton and try that way. I use it as a short cut any how to the west entrance into Fallbrook. Hope it works so I can get stuff done to day.

    thanks a million for the prayers, Jane, Hope the fire won't get bad again Sunday.
    Guns, Grub, and God!

    Prayers for you and everyone in the path of these fires. I know what it's like to evacuate from dangerous fires. BTDT and the fear was intense.
