As hundreds of thousands of people are being evacuated across different parts in the state of California due to the ravenous fire engulfing the area, here’s a list to keep you up to date and stay vigilant.
Here’s a list of information and resources for people impacted by the Kincade Fire and the PG&E Power shutoffs. On Monday, October 28, Governor Gavin Newsom launched a resource page for those affected by power outages and/or wildfires in California.
The website “combines emergency response, recovery, and resilience information into a single place for easy access by users,” the Governor’s office said. “It is a one-stop portal that includes local and state resources, health services, shelters and housing, preparedness information, and more.”

Evacuations were also ordered in Westside hillside communities near the Getty Center Monday after a fast-moving fire erupted along the 405 Freeway.
The blaze broke out on a hill around 1:30 a.m. close to the southbound side of the 405 at Getty Center Drive. It quickly burned more than 600 acres and jumped the freeway.
The area between Sunset Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway, and between Temescal Canyon Road and Chautauqua Boulevard have been changed from a voluntary evacuation zone to an evacuation preparedness zone. Meanwhile, Mount Saint MAry’s University and Carondelet Center are changed to mandatory evacuation zones.

The Tick Fire in Santa Clarita, on the other hand, has received increased containment as of Sunday. All evacuation orders have been lifted as firefighters report an increased containment of a 4,615-acre or 70% containment by Sunday evening.
However, officials warn residents returning to their homes to remain alert as the region is bracing for another bout of Santa Ana Winds expected to hit Sunday evening into Monday that may encourage fires.
An evacuation center was set up at College of the Canyons Gymnasium at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road in Santa Clarita. Smaller animals could be brought to the Castaic Animal Care Center, 31044 N. Charlie Canyon Road.
Despite the increased containment, all schools in the Sulphur Springs Union School District were planning to close Monday. The district was testing the air quality to determine the appropriate date for students and staff to return for each school site.
