UPDATE - Woolsey Fire in #Malibu, Tues, Nov 13, 1PM. All of Malibu still under mandatory evacuation. PCH closed. 101 FWY open

The Woolsey Fire, which broke out in Chatsworth on the afternoon of Thursday, November 8, and reached Malibu early Friday morning, continues to burn throughout the city. A mandatory evacuation was issued for all of Malibu on Friday, November 9. The following is the latest confirmed information:
The following information was confirmed by LA County Fire and other first responders. Current estimate – 96,314 acres, 35% contained. Malibu still under mandatory evacuation. Heavy presence of LA County Sheriff Deputies in Woolsey Fire area.

PCH closed between LA/Ventura from County line to Sunset Blvd. US-101 is now open in both directions, but all off-ramps remain closed between Valley Circle and Liberty Canyon.
If you are affected by the Woolsey or Hill fires you can call the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990.
Smoke and ash from the Woolsey Fire has been carried far beyond the immediate fire area by the same winds that fuel the fires. Residents throughout much of Los Angeles may be experiencing the effects of poor air quality. Side effects from the smoky air include burning eyes, difficulty breathing, chest heaviness, coughing, and more.
Smoke from fires includes small particles and gases that can have adverse health effects, particularly for sensitive individuals. Everyone should avoid unnecessary outdoor activities and prolonged exertion in smoke impacted areas. The elderly and individuals with asthma and other respiratory ailments are more susceptible to the effects of smoke and dust.
Staying indoors can help reduce exposure to smoke and dust. Keeping doors and windows closed, running an air conditioner, and using indoor air filtration devices with HEPA filters can reduce the level of particles that circulate indoors.
For more detailed information about protecting yourself from smoke-related illnesses, view the AQMD’s “Wildfires and Your Health” at www.aqmd.

Two water districts operating within the Woolsey Fire Evacuation Area have issued boil water notices to their customers. The advisories were issued to the communities of Point Dume and Encinal Canyon by Los Angeles County Waterworks District No. 29 and to the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District’s service area south of Westlake Village, east of the Ventura County line, north of the City of Malibu and west of Corral Canyon.

Winds are forecast to decrease a little on Wednesday, with more significant improvements later this week.
