(KGTV) - Crews are continuing to battle strong wind conditions and rough terrain in an effort to put out a massive wildfire in Ventura County that has forced hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes.
Cal Fire officials said the Thomas Fire, which erupted early Monday evening in the Santa Paula area, has burned 90,000 acres, with five-percent containment, and is threatening 12,000 structures as of Wednesday.
Mandatory evacuations and numerous school and road closures have been in place since the fire began.
