The blazes are reaching San Diego, and it has killed two people in Lilac Fire, which is about 45 miles north of San Diego. 

The California's Department of Forest and Fire Protection tweeted mentioning the six major wildfires burning in Southern California, RyeFire, SkirballFire, CreekFire, ThomasFire, LilacFire, and  LibertyFire.

The weather in the Southern California seems against the hundreds of officials trying to take the fire under control. The Red flag warnings have been extended across the Southern California through Saturday.

Around 5,700 firefighters have evacuated at least of 190,000 residents from the affected area, the California Fire officials said. They also said, among the firefighters, almost half of them are assigned to the Thomas Fire alone.
