Skirball Fire Map: Current Location of the Wildfire

Skirball Fire Map: Current Location of the Wildfire

The Foothill (210) Freeway was closed in both directions between the Golden State (5) Freeway on the west and the Glendale (2) Freeway and aren't expected to be reopened until at least later this morning. More than 350 firefighters from 52 engine companies were deployed to the scene, supported by helicopters that were making water drops, said LAFD Fire Chief Ralph Terrazas.

"This fire is very risky and spreading rapidly, but we'll continue to attack it with all we've got", Brown said, according to the Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles fire authorities closed down the freeway shortly thereafter, disrupting the morning commute for hundreds of thousands of people traveling between Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.

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. "It's critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so". Firefighters worked against high winds, hampering their ability to contain the fires.

The blaze broke out at 3:42 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Gold Creek and Little Tujunga roads, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported.
