Skirball Fire Map: Current Location of the Wildfire

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for an area of Bel Air bounded to the north by Mulholland Drive, to the south by Sunset Boulevard, the 405 Freeway to the west and Roscomare Road to the East, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

As the fire burns northeast of the Getty Center and east of the 405 (San Diego) Freeway, the museum and other Center facilities are closed to the public. The Skirball Fire is in mostly residential areas causing evacuation, and UCLA students were given the option to go to class. It remained unclear whether any structures had been damaged or destroyed in the fire.

More than 125 firefighters were on the scene and that water-dropping helicopters were being used, the newspaper said. Firefighting crews were setting up on the southbound side of the 405 to prevent the fire from jumping the freeway, and northbound vehicles were being turned back.

Hundreds of US firefighters were battling to save homes Tuesday as a dynamic brush fire driven by strong winds exploded to at least 4,000 acres in hours in Southern California.

Residents who had to evacuate from their homes described tense moments as the fires rapidly approached.

Los Angeles Fire Dispatcher Margaret Stewart said the fire could grow with winds blowing at over 25 miles per hour. At least 1,000 firefighters were deployed to the scene. The fire burned more than 11,000 acres by Wednesday morning and had destroyed an estimated 30 homes, KTVU-TV reported. Along with the lack of much-needed rain, the Santa Ana winds have made it very hard to contain and put out the fires.
