Los Angeles is up in flames and ritzy homes are ablaze

Los Angeles is up in flames and ritzy homes are ablaze

A wildfire broke out around 4:52 A.M. PT on December 6 near the Skirball Center and Getty Center in the Sepulveda Pass of Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The 50-acre fire was first reported at about 4:50 a.m. on the east side of the northbound lanes, where there are a number of schools and condominium complexes, across the freeway from Skirball Center Drive.

About 100 officers from the Los Angeles Police Department were sent to the neighborhood to handle evacuation orders, said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.

The blaze appeared to be burning across from the Getty Center museum, one of L.A.'s cultural landmarks and home to a priceless collection of art.

The blaze comes amid a red flag warning - due to low humidity and fierce Santa Ana winds - that is expected to last through much of the week.

Thousands of residents were under evacuation order.

"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. Fixed-wing aircraft are unable to fly and gusts of up to 45 miles per hour are being felt, LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas said. As the fire expanded and jumped south of the Foothill Freeway, so did the mandatory evacuation area.

Misraje, who lives in the hills herself off Mulholland Drive, was staying put and telling her members and any clients to listen to authorities, stay in their homes if their area was not being evacuated to keep the roads free, and to stay inside to avoid the contaminated air.

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

The Associated Press reports a new blaze erupted near Los Angeles in the Ventura, Calif., area early Wednesday. All North Bound lanes of the 405 are closed in the area. Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day, but there was no immediate word if classes would resume today.
