The “Creek Fire” started in Sylmar early Tuesday.  (Hermila Flores)

Two ferocious wildfires are currently raging throughout the Sylmar area of Southern California, as well as in Ventura County, leaving hundreds to thousands of people and animals severely threatened.

The Wildlife Waystation, home to more than 400 wild and exotic animals, is located a mere quarter of an acre away from the Creek Fire which has already burned more than 4,000 acres since it was first reported before 4:00 a.m. this morning.

The sheriff’s department has also warned residents to be aware of wild animals that may be displaced from their habitat due to the Creek Fire and into fire-impacted communities.
