'We're Still Anxious.' Firefighters Continue to Battle Growing California Wildfires

(LOS ANGELES) — Firefighters kept a wall of flames from descending mountains into coastal neighborhoods after a huge and destructive Southern California wildfire exploded in size, becoming the fifth largest in state history.

The Thomas Fire forced me from my home. This is what it’s like to evacuate.

The Thomas fire started in Santa Paula, which is about 17 miles from my house. There’s fire danger here all the time — we’re surrounded by National Forest — but those fires are almost always in the wilderness. I usually wake up in the morning after a fire has started to hear that it has gone from 50 percent containment to 95 percent containment and am like, “Yay, firefighters!
