The Kardashian/West family live just around 13 miles from Thousand Oaks, where the night after a mass shooting left 12 dead, fires have threatened to rip through the community.

Smoke could be seen over the area where a vigil was held last night for the victims of the shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill on Wednesday night.

Dubbed the "Hill Fire" the blaze quickly spread to cover between 8,000 and 10,000 acres on this morning, according to Ventura County Fire Department officials.

The Hill fire, which began at around 2pm, was being spread by powerful winds that pushed it through canyons and to the edge of Camarillo Springs and Cal State Channel Islands, both of which were evacuated.

Two large brush fires caused 75,000 homes to be placed under evacuation orders along the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties.
