Woolsey Fire Burns In Malibu: Hollywood Takes Cover | Hollywood Reporter

The Woolsey fire kept up its westward onslaught late Friday afternoon, destroying houses, shutting down freeways and consuming tens of thousands of acres in its brutal rush toward the Pacific Ocean.

Fueled by strong Santa Ana winds and an excessive build-up of dry brush in the Santa Monica Mountains, the fire had consumed upwards of 35,000 acres and growing, and forced the evacuation of some 90,000 homes. California’s Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency on Friday, on behalf of outgoing Governor Jerry Brown.
