  • Creek Fire: 210 Freeway reopens as firefight continues

Map showing the location of the Skirball Fire that started early Wednesday morning in Los Angeles. The evacuation order was later expanded, covering a large area bounded by Mulholland Drive to the north, Sunset Boulevard to the south, the 405 to the west and Roscomare Road on the east.

Schools were closed in the area and some local residents were ordered to evacuate. The Los Angeles Times reported that several homes in the Bel-Air neighborhood were seen burning as the fire continues to grow from 50 acres.

The Los Angeles Times reports a ring of fire also formed around the hillside house where "Ring of Fire" singer Johnny Cash one lived.

Fire Department spokesman Margaret Stewart says the fire was reported at 4:52 a.m. and is burning uphill, driven by the landscape rather than winds.

According to LAPD: Residents by Casiano Rd, Moraga, & Linda Flora in West Los Angeles being evacuated/are evacuated for the 405 brush fire.

Los Angeles Fire Dispatcher Margaret Stewart said the fire could grow with winds blowing at over 25 miles per hour. Two firefighting helicopters have been assigned.

The Skirball fire situation is rapidly evolving.

Nearly 200,000 people lost power in Ventura County on Tuesday, making it challenging for the 1,100 firefighters to put out the flames. The Creek fire has burned more than 11,000 acres and destroyed at least 30 structures.

The fire was zero percent contained as of Wednesday morning, Terrazas said.

The multiple wildfires in Southern California were spreading so fast in part due to what officials called the strongest Santa Ana winds of the season.

The entire Sepulveda Pass, both north and southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway, will be closed between the 101 and the 10 Freeway indefinitely.

The Skirball Center shuttered and said it would remain closed until further notice.
