Nearly a month after wildfires ripped through Southern California and killed 14 people, another brush fire has broken out in Malibu.
It began around 3:30 AM near the top of Corral Canyon, and over 1,600 acres have been destroyed. At least 35 homes have been lost and another 200 are being threatened. Thus far, no injuries have been reported.
According to the Malibu city website all areas from Corral Canyon west to Trancas Canyon Road are under mandatory evacuation.
An evacuation center has been set up by the Red Cross at Agoura High School. The city advises people not to evacuate to Zuma Beach because there is heavy smoke in the area.
