Thousands of firefighters remain on the line Tuesday, working to contain the Woolsey Fire, which has burned more than 96,000 acres and destroyed hundreds of homes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

The fire broke out Thursday afternoon north of Bell Canyon and rapidly moved south through the Santa Monica Mountains, jumping the 101 Freeway and tearing through hillside communities in Malibu, eventually burning all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

Two people were found dead Friday afternoon in the 3300 block of Mullholland Highway, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Investigators believe the driver may have become disoriented while escaping the area, but the investigation is ongoing.
