Firefighters battling a huge Southern California wildfire have ordered new evacuations in a neighbourhood overlooking canyons where flames are surging.
The Ventura County Fire Department have called for residents to immediately leave homes along a two-mile length of Potrero Road on the southern edge of the city at Thousand Oaks.
The fire broke out on Thursday morning in neighbouring Camarillo and strong Santa Ana winds pushed it about 10 miles to the Pacific.
Those offshore winds have faded and the return of onshore winds has sent flames back up wilderness canyons toward neighbourhoods.
Some homes were damaged on Thursday but none have been lost.
