The massive brush-fire started 10 days ago, and has since burnt over 96,900 acres, destroyed more than 1,400 structures, and taken the lives of three civilians.

CalFire anticipates full containment by November 22, and released the following announcement regarding upcoming weather conditions:

For tonight, north to northeast winds will develop once again.  The winds tonight will be a bit stronger with gusts between 20 and 30MPH.  The stronger off shore winds will keep relative humidity lower, especially across the ridges and upper slopes. 

Firefighting resources will continue to mop up and patrol. Crews remain diligent in providing public service to residents as they return to their homes. Structures destroyed and damaged have been validated by damage assessment teams. Currently 90% of the burn assessment is complete.

Cleanup services are well underway for those who suffered losses due to the fire.  On Monday, November 19th, the city of Malibu will be without power from 8 AM to 8 PM as So Cal Edison works to repair damaged power lines.
