A brush fire fanned by some of the most powerful winds of the season grew to more than 1,000 acres in just three hours Wednesday in the hills of Simi Valley.
The Easy Fire was reported Wednesday around 6 a.m. on a hillside between Simi Valley and Moorpark during extreme fire weather conditions. Buildings at the hilltop library were not immediately threatened, but homes below were evacuated.
About 1,000 structures are threatened and about 6,500 homes are evacuated in the area about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The evacuations affect about 26,000 residents.
