(FOX 11) - Residents living in the Woolsey Fire burn zone could face a new threat this week in the form of rain, forecasters said.
Officials in Los Angeles and Ventura counties warned that rain is likely to hit Southern California on Wednesday, raising potential for mud and rock slides, especially along Highway 1 and the canyon roads.
Since erupting Nov. 8, the massive blaze has burned 96,949 acres in Ventura and Los Angeles counties and was 94 percent contained by Monday morning.
An estimated 1,500 structures have been destroyed, with 341 damaged. Approximately 95 percent of the burn area assessment has been completed, Cal Fire said.
Three people have been killed in the Woolsey Fire, and three firefighters have been injured.
Southern California Edison was scheduled to conduct critical repairs Monday in Malibu to transmission lines and equipment from Kanan Dume Road to Tuna Canyon Road. Officials said power will be shut off to all customers within the impacted area from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.
