Cal Fire authorities on Monday updated the number of structures that were set ablaze as a result of the Woolsey Fire. That number now sits at more than 370 structures.
The fire itself has burned more than 91,000 acres. Mandatory evacuation orders remain in effects for the cities of Mailbu, Calabasas and Hidden Hills, as well as the communities of West Hills, Monte Nido, Gated Oaks and Topanga. Meanwhile, the evacuation orders have been lifted for both Agoura Hills and Westlake Village.
Structures that have burned include vineyards, historical sites and homes, including residences of many popular celebrities like Gerard Butler, director Scott Derrickson, and musician Miley Cyrus. More than 250,000 people have displaced as a result of the fires. Three firefighters have sustained injuries battling the flames.
Malibu City Councilman Skylar Peak said on Saturday about the fire, “This is the most destructive and devastating fire that I’ve witnessed since the 1993 fires.”
California Governor Jerry Brown requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration to bolster the ongoing emergency response battling the major fires in both the LA and Ventura Counties, as well as in Butte County where the Camp Fire continues to spread.
