Woolsey Fire Forces Malibu Evacuations

The city of Malibu announced in an 8 a.m. advisory, that portions of Malibu are under mandatory evacuation for all areas south of 101 Freeway, from Ventura County line to Las Virgenes/Malibu Canyon and south to the ocean, which includes much of the City of Malibu.

Santa Ana winds fueled the Woolsey fire, which started in Simi Valley on Thursday afternoon. According to Ventura County fire officials, the blaze jumped the 101 Freeway near Chesebro Road on Friday morning.

The American Red Cross says the nearest evacuation center for residents of Malibu is at Palisades High School, 15777 Bowdoin St., in Pacific Palisades.
