The Chico Fire Department said: 'Firefighters continue to actively engage the fire in order to protect life and property'.

The Woosley Fire exploded from 2,000 acres to 8,000 in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in a matter of hours Thursday night into Friday.

"This is a very unsafe wind driven fire".

Voluntary evacuations have been added in Ventura County for Lake Sherwood and the area south of Highway 101 and north of Potrero Rd. between Westlake Blvd. and Wendy Dr.in Thousand Oaks. Traffic accidents turned roads into gridlock and residents abandoned vehicles and ran from the flames, carrying children and pets, officials said.

"I know they all got calls..."

"Please, please, please if you are asked to voluntarily leave the area, please do", Ventura County fire Capt. Scott Dettore told CNN affiliate KTLA on Friday morning.

It was 0 percent contained and the cause was under investigation.

Bass evacuated his family and then returned to the fire to help rescue several disabled residents, including a man trying to carry his bedridden wife to safety. "It's going to take some time", he said.

Another fire to the west has burned more than 9 square miles (23 square kilometers) in Ventura County but has slowed since reaching the footprint of a fire stripped away vegetation in 2013.

Evacuation center locations, road closure and school closure information for the fires can be found on the Ventura County emergency page here. "Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation", he said.

High winds and dry vegetation made the fires spread quickly, Ventura County fire officials said, and a red flag warning was in effect until 10 p.m. Friday, promising another day of dry, hot, windy weather. The blaze sent residents fleeing, and now threatens the city of Chico, home to 90,000 people.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Trey Epsy said crews created "water curtains" between homes to salvage the ones they could.

The 69-year-old moved into the home after splitting from Kris Jenner and it acted as a hideaway while the former Olympian was transitioning.

Near Oak Park, the town of Thousand Oaks - still reeling from a mass shooting on Wednesday night - has also been threatened by the encroaching blaze.

Although an unknown number of structures have been destroyed, there were no reports of any injuries to firefighters or residents as of mid-morning Friday.

The actor said his "nervous" daughter Willow, 18, asked him to go and have a look outside as the Woolsey wildfire, which is now 14,000 acres and being fed by strong winds and dry conditions, creeps closer to their home.
