Down the road from the Thousand Oaks shooting, people are being evacuated because of a wildfire

The fire burning in Ventura County has caused the closure of the 101 Freeway in both directions.

(CNN)A mass shooting claimed the lives of 12 people in Thousand Oaks, California on Wednesday night. Now a brush fire is threatening the surrounding area.

Smoke could be seen over the area where a vigil will be held tonight for the victims of the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill.
Dubbed the "Hill Fire," the blaze quickly spread to cover between 8,000 and 10,000 acres on Thursday, according to Ventura County Fire Department officials.
Residents took to social media to share their views of the flames nearly consuming the hillside in Newbury Park, which borders Thousand Oaks to the west.
