The blazes brought evacuation orders for almost 200,000 people, destroyed almost 200 homes and have remained mostly out control. Fifteen engines from the Creek Fire were moved to the Skirball Fire Wednesday, the chief said at a morning news conference.

It all started around 1:20 p.m. Thursday when a Lincoln Town Car and Ford Explorer collided at Broadway and Liberty Street near Zuccotti Park. Auto traffic in the area was closed as police investigated the situation.

A driver was being held at the scene, cops said. Authorities were working to determine whether the crash was intentional.
