Striking images show California wildfires from space

Ventura County sheriff's Sgt. Kevin Donoghue tells The Associated Press that the woman's body was found Wednesday night at the scene of a crash in the Wheeler Canyon area of Santa Paula.

The Thomas Fire, which started at around 6:30pm Monday, is considered a wildfire, and was the first of the three to ignite.

As multiple fires spread through Southern California, museums near the affected areas have been taking preventative action to close.

Erin Mellon, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Water Resources, said that climate change is believed to have influenced the recent cycle of droughts and record rainfall.

The fire is burning in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles (48km) north of Los Angeles, according to KABC.

High winds meant the fire swept through tens of thousands of acres in a matter of hours.

Calmer overnight conditions helped crews protect the Ventura County resort town of Ojai, where most of the 7,000 residents were under new evacuation orders following a big burst of wind late Wednesday.

About 500 firefighters were battling the fire that destroyed multiple structures, Ventura County said on its website.

The winds are expected to reach 80 mph, roughly equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane, and Cal Fire said that there was an "extreme" increase in fire potential stretching south towards San Diego.

In a Facebook statement, Mr Murdoch said some neighbours suffered heavy losses and his thoughts and prayers were with them.

"We're basically in an urban firefight in Ventura, where if you can keep that house from burning, you might be able to slow the fire down", said Tim Chavez, a fire behavior specialist at the blaze.

The flames also prompted the evacuation of literally thousands of pets, not only dogs and cats but horses, goats, alpacas and other large livestock.
