9 Dead In Camp Fire, Over 6,700 Structures Destroyed: Latest Updates from California Wildfires

At least nine people have died from wildfires that have engulfed portions of California since Wednesday.

The Butte County Sherriff's Office said on Friday that five people were discovered in cars burned by the blaze in Paradise, California. The four remaining individuals were found at locations not revealed by the sheriff's office.

The Camp Fire has grown to encompass more than 140 acres, with 6,700 structures believed to have been destroyed as the wildfire continues to burn about 80 miles north of Sacramento.

In Southern California, Malibu's 13,000 residents were issued mandatory evacuations on Friday afternoon as the Woolsey Fire continued to push towards the Pacific Ocean. The fire jumped the 101 Freeway on Friday morning, though the highway was closed on Thursday in Ventura County as the fire rapidly grew in size.

The Woolsey Fire has grown to 35,000 acres, covering over 55 square miles, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby said in a press conference.

An estimated 75,000 homes were evacuated in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties from two separate fires – the Hill Fire and the Woolsey Fire – which began within hours of one another.

Damage from the Woolsey Fire includes Western Town - a Wild West town replica located on the Paramount Ranch in Agoura. The set was built in 1927 and included in television shows such as "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," "Gunsmoke," and "Westworld" and numerous films.

For the Hill Fire, officials estimate that 11 acres have been burned. The fire has slowed since reaching the footprint of another wildfire - the Springs Fire - that burned a portion of Ventura County in 2013, the Weather Channel reported.

All three fires continue to grow in size, with high winds that fan the flames forecast for California throughout Friday night.

California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said 157,000 have been ordered to evacuate from the three wildfires. That number could grow considerably as the Camp Fire approached the eastern side of Chico, a town of 90,000 people.

A fourth fire also began on Friday morning near the Los Angeles Zoo with all bird show animals and smaller primates being evacuated by the staff.

The zoo tweeted that employees workers turned on sprinklers and hoses to water down the hillside while Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters hiked into difficult terrain in a remote part of Griffith Park to fight the blaze.

The fire has reached a size of about 30 acres or 19 city blocks. The zoo remained closed on Friday.
