The Thomas Fire in Ventura County spread across more than 100,000 acres by Thursday afternoon, while the Creek Fire also continued to spread near Sylmar.

A brush fire burning in San Diego County on Thursday afternoon, December 7, had burned two structures, damaged 12 others and prompted evacuations, Cal Fire said in a Twitter message.

Trainer Mike Machowsky, contacted via phone by the TDN late Thursday, said his assistant at San Luis Rey reported that the fire began on the nearby hillside and quickly reached some of the barns at the edge of the property.

Officials ordered fresh evacuations in the forested areas of Ojai, which is near the fire's northern edge. Officials said the fire was growing at a "dangerous rate" thanks to high-speed winds in the area. The brush fire broke out just before 11:20 a.m. on Thursday off of I-15 near Hwy 76. San Diego Fire-Rescue and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton were sending water-dropping helicopters to assist in the firefight. North County Fire has issued a mandatory evacuation for everything west of U.S. Route 395 to Sullivan Middle School.
