Ventura disaster today ,
Ventura, California (CNN)Howling Santa Ana winds pushed a wildfire from rural hills into parts of the Southern California city of Ventura overnight with explosive speed, destroying dozens of buildings and forcing thousands of people to evacuate.
On Ventura's northern edge, at least 10 homes and numerous palm Trees were burning in one neighborhood, sending thick smoke and dangerous embers into the gusty air.
By Tuesday morning, the fire had burned about 45,000 acres in 13 hours, and some homes were ablaze in the northern part of Ventura -- a city of more than 100,000 people along the Pacific coast.
The Creek fire broke out off Little Tujunga Canyon Road around 4 a.m. and was threatening homes north of the 210 Freeway.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was ordering evacuations in unincorporated areas. The Los Angeles Police Department was handling evacuations in parts of Slymar and Lakeview Terrace.
A large group of firefighters was on the scene, and up to eight water-dropping helicopters were hitting the fire, trying to slow its progress.
The blaze comes as firefighters are dealing with a fast-moving, wind-fueled wildfire that swept into the city of Ventura, burning 31,000 acres, destroying homes and forcing 27,000 people to evacuate. About 150 structures — including at least one large apartment complex — were consumed by flames, and many more were threatened as the fire crept about a quarter-mile from Ventura City Hall,ventura fire live.
Evacuation centers have been set up at the Sylmar Recreation Center, 13109 Borden Avenue and Sunland Senior Center, 8640 Fenwick Street.
