The wildfires in Southern California don't look like they're going to stop anytime soon.

There are now four large active fires burning through Ventura and Los Angeles County: Thomas, Rye, Creek and Skirball.

The Thomas Fire in Ventura County is still the largest at 65,000 acres. About 50,000 people have evacuated the area.

First responders say that the Rye Fire is 7,000 acres and 5 percent contained, the Creek Fire is 11,377 acres and the Skirball Fire is 150 acres.

The National Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning, effective through Saturday, warning California residents that there will be more wind and "critical fire weather conditions."
