California has been overtaken by a string of deadly wildfires, which continue to blaze in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties to the south and the town of Paradise, California to the north. 

Since the fires began on November 8, few communities have been more devastated than Malibu, a wealthy enclave that’s been engulfed by the Woolsey Fire. Authorities report that the fire has spread across 91,500 acres of land and is only 20% contained

Nearby, the Hill Fire has destroyed more than 4,500 acres, but was 80% contained on Monday.

In Northern California, the Camp Fire destroyed the entire town of Paradise in less than a day, killing at least 29 people and decimating 6,700 structures. The fire has already been dubbed the most destructive wildfire in California history.

Though the majority of deaths have taken place in Paradise, at least two people were declared dead in Malibu on Friday. Their burned bodies were found in a car near Mulholland Highway.

As the Woolsey Fire continues to rage, mandatory evacuations remain in place in Malibu. Take a look at how the luxury community has changed in the last few days.
