30 photos you have not seen for Thomas Fire burns in Ventura County

VENTURA, Calif. (KABC) -- The wind-driven Thomas Fire exploded to 55,000 acres - or 70 square miles - with zero percent containment by Tuesday afternoon, destroying at least 150 structures, according to Ventura County fire officials.

Multiple homes in the area of Scenic Way Drive in Ventura could be seen burning from the air. In downtown Ventura, the Hawaiian Village apartment complex was engulfed in flames.

Other homes on High Point Drive above Foothill Road in Ventura were burning as embers blown by whipping winds filled the air.

By the evening hours, the blaze had jumped the 101 Freeway near Solimar Beach, which is located between Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. The freeway remained open.

During the day, a small brush fire burned nearby in an area south of Wildwood Park. The fire was sized up at two acres, but had the potential to grow to 10-20 acres, according to Ventura County fire officials. Homes were possibly threatened.
