Fire continues rapidly pushing west all around the Oak Park area
Evacs continue to be expanded along Kanan Rd, Westlake Blvd, and Lang Ranch Open Space areas
Fire has crossed the 101
Haven’t seen a com plan right now most updates coming from twitter and scanner that’s catching VNC CMD and LAC Blue Channels(CMD)
No offense to the drawing but the Woolsey is way down SW of that drawing into oak park and around it. Plus didn’t I hear it jumped the 101 this morning?
These are heat signatures from a satellite. They can be thrown off slightly due to heat in the column, and the distance being calculated. Just gives a general idea.
Yes fire jumped the 101 at Chesboro Rd and is in direct alignment with the wind and topography, Malibu is in the direct path. RAWS station in Malibu showing sustained winds 36mph gusts over 55 and RH of 7% for almost 20hours now
Air Attack for Woolsey and Hill just requested 10 additional air tankers any type and 2 additional VLAT’s. TFR extended to the ocean
There was also an order just submitted for 20 engine strike teams to respond.
I’ve got a rough mapping of the Woolsey Fire from the satellite map of 18000 acres. It has jumped the 101 at Agoura Hills around Kanan Road. Mandatory evacs for everyone south of the 101 between SR 23 and Las Virgenes/Malibu Canyon, including Malibu.
Sounds like the fire is already to Highway 23 and Mulholland drive.
