Tick Fire Evacuations and Closures, Multiple Structures Burned

Multiple fires had broken out in Los Angeles County on Thursday, October 24th due to strong Santa Ana winds. The #TickFire was initially reported at 200 acres and has since grown to over 5000 acres in mere hours. The blaze was reported early Thursday afternoon near the 31600 block of Tick Canyon Road.
