Two shelters set up for large animals are full and not accepting any more animals, but the Rancho Potrero Community Equestrian Center, 4790 West Lynn Road, in Thousand Oaks was opened Wednesday afternoon.
Along 1100 block of Tierra Rejada Road, as flames raged and winds gusted nearby, people led horses into the back of trailers, video from the scene showed.
About 9 a.m. an outbuilding in the area was engulfed in flames as people tried to corral more frightened horses.
Goats could also be seen wandering near flames.
At that point, the fire had burned 400 acres, but just an hour later, the blaze had more than doubled in size to 1,300 acres, officials said.
In Moorpark, "Silence of the Lambs" actress Brooke Smith tweeted that trailers were needed at 15608 Tierra Rejada Road in Moorpark.
“40 horses here with no trailers,” she tweeted about 7:50 a.m.

Friedman told people trying to get their horses to safety to remain calm and not to let horses run free.
He said conditions in the fire were changing very quickly and that while some ranches are safe, others are in the path of flames.
“The winds are so fierce that they’re just blowing in different directions, and everything is very very dynamic right now.”
