In his 24 years as a firefighter in Ventura County, Antonio Negrete has never seen a wildfire grow as quickly and with such intensity as the Thomas fire.

As residents begin to return home there are things to look out for. "They've done a fantastic job", said Ettman.

Borenstein added that seniors who predominantly make up those in skilled nursing facilities can be more vulnerable to the effects of smoke inhalation, particularly if they have existing lung conditions. "We know the fire was close". "It's 40 percent of our sales for the whole year so right now we're pretty anxious".

Stoke have only won four games all season and they are having their worst start to a campaign since winning promotion in 2008. The London outfit's push for safety will continue when they travel to 15th-placed Stoke City later on Saturday.


People can call the Santa Barbara County Thomas Fire help line at 805.681.5542 with questions about evacuations, transportation assistance for evacuating, or to talk to a counselor, said Suzanne Grimmesey of the Behavioral Wellness Department. Winds are expected to be more favorable over the next 24 hours, between 10-20 mph.

This year is the worst on record for wildfire devastation in California. The house was completely gutted and destroyed, but the famous studio escaped damage.

The majority of resources will be directed to continue suppression efforts in the coastal communities of Santa Barbara County. Some 18,000 more residences are still threatened. "If you hold the compass up, it burned north to south, right down the canyons - Romero, Cold Spring Canyon - and it burned in and around a number of homes", said Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority, one of many agencies involved in the firefight.

San Diego-based Cal Fire engineer Cory Iverson died fighting the Thomas fire in Ventura County, while a 70-year-old woman was killed in an accident as she fled in her auto. The cost of battling the inferno, which began on December 4, has reached at least $110,286,500, Cal Fire said. But the conditions are setting the stage for a long fight, with officials saying they don't expect containment until January.
