California governor declares state of emergencyCalifornia Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for a wildfire that's charred more than 50,000 acres near Greater Los Angeles, killed one person and injured a firefighter -- and shows little sign of slowing down.

The Thomas Fire has so far ravaged Ventura County, with the help of strong winds. Officials said the flames have destroyed nearly 200 homes.

Late Tuesday it had reached Solimar Beach near the Pacific Ocean. Brown's emergency declaration covers Ventura County.

As of Tuesday evening, the fire was zero percent contained.

"This fire is very dangerous and spreading rapidly, but we'll continue to attack it with all we've got," Brown said. "It's critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so."
