Strong winds, with gusts in excess of 70 miles per hour, sent hot embers flying from home to home and the fire quickly spread.

Fires in California's wine country, an area in the north of the state, broke out almost simultaneously and then exploded overnight, sending residents fleeing as embers rained down and flames raged around them.

South of the 91 Freeway, west of the 241, north of Nohl Canyon Road and east of Serrano. Evacuations have been ordered for neighborhoods and two elementary schools. Three regional parks - Irvine, Santiago Oaks and Yorba - were all closed due to the fire and smoke covering the area.

Fire officials said large animals could also be taken to the Orange County Fairgrounds.

Approximately 1,000 firefighters from different areas are combatting the fire.
