Brush fire breaks out in Los Angeles

As a raging conflagration now called the Skirball Fire engulfed the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles on Wednesday morning, December 6, the nearby Getty Center and its fabled J. Paul Getty Museum appeared to be safe for the time being.

Around 5 a.m. we learned reports of a 10-acre fire burning near the Getty Museum. Mandatory evacuation for area East of the 405 Fwy, South of Mulholland Dr., West of Roscomare Rd. The fire burned more than 11,000 acres by Wednesday morning and had destroyed an estimated 30 homes, KTVU-TV reported.

The strong, desiccating Santa Ana winds have created ideal conditions for wildfires, by compressing hot air in the L.A. basin, and prompting the spread of embers well ahead of any fires that crop up.

"It's a very hard moment, but we will get through this", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Tuesday, the New York Post reported. Padilla said she and her family were able to get out of her home just in time but were not able to take their horses with them as they had to evacuate immediately when they were awakened Tuesday morning.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas warned that the battle was likely to continue until at least Friday.

The 210 Freeway has been shut down from Sunland Boulevard on the east to the 5 Freeway on the west, and the 118 Freeway interchange with the 210 is also closed amid the firefight. As the fire expanded and jumped south of the Foothill Freeway, so did the mandatory evacuation area. "Residents of Mandeville Canyon and Sullivan Canyon should be prepared for evacuation the department said".

Large animals were ordered to evacuate at Hansen Dam Equestrian Center, Pierce College and the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.

The extent of the fires was captured on video as commuters drove along a freeway on Wednesday. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's station in Santa Clarita reported its 911 emergency phone system had failed due to a power outage.
