Several areas of the SoCal demographic are affected or have been evacuated, including: Bel-Air, San Bernandino, Ventura County, Santa Clarita, Sylmar, and select areas of Beverly Hills. The largest ( the Thomas fire), had erupted in Ventura County northwest of downtown LA. The Thomas Fire tore across 65,000 acres by Wednesday morning, and the blaze destroyed hundreds of homes, threatened 12,000 structures and forced 27,000 people to evacuate, officials stated to the Washington Post on December 6th.
