The Thomas Fire, which has burned 50,000 acres in Ventura County, started in an area north of Santa Paula Monday night and ripped through the area into the city of Ventura within hours. It has caused thousands of people to evacuate their homes and burned hundreds of those structures.

Amid the strong, dry winds, the Creek Fire in Sylmar erupted and also promoted evacuations and destroyed residences Tuesday afternoon.

As of Tuesday night, neither blaze was contained.
