Wildfire endangers Pepperdine University
Three homes, three businesses and one church have been destroyed in a fire that also forced students to evacuate their dorms on the Pepperdine University campus in Malibu and shut down a portion of the Pacific Coast highway, according to CNN.
Evacuation centers were set up at Zuma beach for those who have evacuated about 200 homes, campus buildings and a nearby vacation resort. The university campus' power was knocked out and several buildings are in danger from the fire.
The wildfire had consumed over 1,000 acres moving quickly fueled by high-speed winds of up to 65 miles per hour and the hot and dry weather conditions in Malibu, according to the New York Times.
No rain is expected until Tuesday while helicopters dropping water and some 250 firefighters battle the blaze, according to the New York Times.
