The Ventura County Sheriff's Office Of Emergency Services has created a map showing where structures have been damaged or destroyed by the Woolsey and Hill fires.

County officials published the map with a disclaimer that the burn zone is still being inspected and is subject to change.

"The points shown on this map are being updated regularly as crews are able to safely access new areas," officials said. "Data is subject to change as information is gathered, analyzed and verified."

The Woolsey and Hill fires started within 30 minutes of each other Thursday, Nov. 8. The Hill Fire has been held to roughly 4,531 acres and is 94 percent contained, according to a Wednesday morning update from Cal Fire.

The Woolsey Fire, fueled by strong Santa Ana winds, rapidly spread south from its origin near Simi Valley, burning all the way to the coast and devasting the communities of Malibu and Topanga. The blaze has scorched more than 96,000 acres and was about 47 percent contained as of 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Two deaths have been linked to the fire and a third body was discovered in the burn zone Tuesday.
