The Hill Fire started not far from the Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a mass shooting. Beginning yesterday with the Camp Fire, Californians are now battling the Camp Fire, Hill Fire, and Woolsey Fire as high-speed winds continue to spark more blazes.

The blaze earlier ripped through Paradise, about 20 miles east of Chico.

Several evacuation sites were issuing protective masks for citizens, Ventura County Emergency Services said. Flames were inches away, smoke was thick, cars weren't moving and people were panicking. Another fire northwest of Los Angeles has been swept southward toward the ocean by strong Santa Ana winds.
