12 Nov 2018, 9:07 pm

High fire danger continues across California with no immediate relief from dry conditions and gusty Santa Ana winds.

As of Monday evening the Woolsey Fire, burning in Ventura County and Los Angeles County, has grown to 93,662 acres with 30% containment and threatening 57,000 homes.

Nearby in Ventura County, the Hill Fire increased to 85% containment with 4,531 acres burned.

Within this same area, two smaller brush fires broke out earlier in the day on Monday, both at 100% by the end of the day thanks to quick efforts by the firefighters.

With the dangerous fire weather conditions in Southern California, firefighters urge residents to stay vigilant and not let their guard down.  We spoke with the Venture County Fire Department to get the latest updates.
