Multiple destructive wildfires continue to rage in Southern California, fanned by the strongest Santa Ana winds L.A. and Ventura have experienced since 2012, according to the National Weather Service.
The largest fire is the Thomas Fire in Ventura County, which by early Tuesday afternoon had burned 50,000 acres and destroyed at least 150 structures. About 27,000 people were under evacuation orders.
Authorities reported zero percent containment on the Thomas Fire.
Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency Tuesday morning.
