Southern California Fires Continue to Grow and Devastate

The wildfires burning through  Southern California  keep getting bigger.  Officials are focusing on the three biggest active fires: the Thomas Fire heading toward the city of Ventura, and the Rye Fire and the Creek Fire, which are both in Los Angeles County.

On Tuesday evening the Thomas Fire had grown to 50,000 acres.

The  Los Angeles County Fire Department  said the Rye Fire covered 5,000 acres and was 5 percent contained, and the Creek Fire had grown to 11,000 acres.

Officials say 27,000 people have already evacuated the Ventura area, and first responders are evacuating Los Angeles County.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District issued a  smoke advisory  through Wednesday morning.
