On Tuesday, Representative Steve Knight (R-CA) reached out to Governor Jerry Brown's office to request a state of emergency be declared in Los Angeles County in response to the Rye Fire and Sylmar Fire.

The blaze, which broke out at 3:42 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Gold Creek and Little Tujunga roads in the Kagel Canyon area, was estimated at 14,000 acres by midday Wednesday.

A stubborn, wind-driven brush fire that raged through the hills above Sylmar and threatened thousands of homes continued spreading Wednesday, with more than 100,000 residents remaining under evacuation orders.

At a mid-morning briefing at the firefighting command post at Hansen Dam, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said high winds were hindering the deployment of firefighting aircraft.

Padilla said she was woken up at approximately 4 a.m.by the Los Angeles County Fire Department's orders to evacuate immediately.

The fire has torn through the city of Ventura and has destroyed 120 buildings.

Strong eastern winds pushed the fire toward the cities of Santa Paula and Ventura, where about 140,000 people live, county officials said.

"Thank you to the first responder who are actively fighting this fire and directing people to safety".

The flames were driven by Southern California's dry and gusty Santa Ana winds, which have contributed to some of the region's most disastrous wildfires. About 20 of the 30 homes have that burned were in Little Tujunga, Kagel and Lopez canyons, officials said. Eater learned of a few restaurant closures in the area, including the Hideaway Bar and Grill in Sylmar, which is directly in the fire's perimeter. "All that firefighters can do when we have winds like this is get out ahead, evacuate people and protect structures".

A Nixle alert for the Creek Fire was sent out to the area shown below.

The fire affected a number of schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Another 210 firefighters from the Los Angeles Fire Department joined in the coordinated effort to battle the Creek Fire, the department said.

"This fire is very risky and spreading rapidly, but we'll continue to attack it with all we've got", said Governor Brown.

The newest fires come at the end of what has already been the most destructive fire season in California history in terms of property loss.
