The latest numbers estimate the Hill fire has burned over 10,000 acres.

A wind-driven wildfire raged through Southern California communities on Friday, burning homes and forcing thousands of people to flee as it relentlessly pushed toward tony Malibu and the Pacific Ocean.

The fire placed more than 75,000 homes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties under evacuation orders as of Friday morning, and there was still no containment on the blaze.

Cal State Channel Islands has also been closed.

Cal Fire has used aircraft minimally because high winds diminish their effectiveness in dropping retardant, Pimlott explained during Friday morning's press conference. "You pose a danger to yourself and emergency responders", Ventura County Fire Department Captain Scott Dettorre said about the drivers.

Ventura County Fire Capt. Brian McGrath said the front of the fire was still burning toward the coast and had grown rapidly overnight.

Pepperdine on Friday closed its Malibu and Calabasas campuses because of the approaching blaze.

The fast-moving Hill fires started near the community of Thousand Oaks, which was in the midst of grappling with the Wednesday night shooting that killed 12 at the Borderline nightclub. At one point, the unrelenting flames burned about 2,000 acres per hour taking down everything - big box stores, homes, and businesses - in its path.

In addition, two large fires ignited in Ventura County in the Los Angeles region.

Heavy smoke and strong winds hampered visibility for crews on the firelines and residents trying to evacuate fire zones.

Ventura County Fire Department tweeted that intense winds fueled the fire overnight, leading it to jump 101.

Where are the other fires?

Just 12 minutes after it started Thursday afternoon, the flames spread across United States 101, leaving several drivers temporarily stranded. "We know there have been fatalities", but exact numbers still being determined by local law enforcement agencies, he said.

Residents posted on social media to share their views of the flames almost consuming the hillside in the Newbury Park area of western Thousand Oaks.

Fire officials anticipate the fire will reach the Pacific Ocean.

Wind gusts of up to 77 miles per hour were reported in Los Angeles County on Friday morning.

"We expect to see another breezy offshore wind event develop on Sunday and into Monday, although it will likely be a notch or two weaker than the current event", reported the forecast team.
