Multiple wildfires are raging out of control across Southern California, burning more than 100,000 acres in only a few days.

Fierce Santa Ana winds are whipping the fires with gusts up to 85 miles per hour.

At least 120,000 people have fled the fires, with officials across the Los Angeles area ordering further evacuations Thursday morning. Hundreds of schools are closed until further notice and multiple universities canceled classes for safety.
