All South County schools chose to close Thursday due to the impacts of the Thomas Fire raging in nearby Ventura County, Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido said. Parts of Ojai, Santa Paula and La Conchita remained under mandatory evacuation orders.

"This is good news for the fire crews as the winds will not be driven quite as vigorously", a weather service statement said.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said that the Rye Fire was 5 percent contained Wednesday after it burned about 5,000 acres in Santa Clarita near Magic Mountain on Tuesday.

Officials hope the electronic push will keep the region alert and the death toll from the week's fires at zero.

The Sheriff's Office issued the evacuation warnings at the advice of the Thomas fire incident commander, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Back in the beachside city of Ventura, the fire killed more than two dozen horses at a stable and had destroyed at least 150 structures, a number that was expected to get far bigger as firefighters are able to assess losses.

Southern California had been plagued by brush fires the past week, a result of dry weather and the strong Santa Ana winds.

In Los Angeles, the Burning index rating, a daily reading of fire danger, is now at 296, according to fire officials, a record.
