The wildfires throughout California are forcing massive evacuations in the state. CGTN’s May Lee reports live in West Hills, CA.

The Southern California wildfire has forced evacuations for Malibu and other cities along the nearby coast and mountain range in Los Angeles County.

Just two days after the fatal mass shooting at a college bar in Thousand Oaks, Ventura County has also called for mandatory evacuation of the town. The order came just moments after a large public memorial had been held for the victims.

In the northern part of the state, the “Camp Fire” continues to rage after already driving tens of thousands from Paradise, and other other neighboring towns. Early Friday, officials confirmed five people found dead in vehicles torched by flames from Northern California wildfire.
