Skirball Fire: Everything You Need To Know About Evacuations, Burn Maps & More

Kim said, "I pray everyone in Los Angeles is safe from these fires and THANK YOU to all of the fire fighters working so hard to keep everyone safe!"

"The prospects for containment are not good", Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said at a news conference Tuesday.

More than 125 firefighters were on the scene and that water-dropping helicopters were being used, the newspaper said.

Around 5 a.m. we learned reports of a 10-acre fire burning near the Getty Museum. The fire is now estimated at 50,500 acres and is being pushed by strong east winds. "It's critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so". Strong winds helped push the fire uphill, putting homes and residents in danger.

Wind-whipped wildfires were tearing through neighborhoods in northern Los Angeles County, blackening more than 4,500 acres and destroying multiple homes.

One L.A. city firefighter was injured when a bulldozer rolled over. Reporter Christina Salvo says the smoke is so thick on Casiano Drive that "we couldn't see the flames. we were seeing firefighters on peoples' balconies with firehoses trying to drench the vegetation below". That blaze destroyed about 500 homes and led to various policy changes, including a prohibition on wood-shingle roofs and the strict requirement to remove brush from around properties.

Gibson said there are 85 horses are boarded at the ranch and more than 20 cattle.

The wind and the fires are expected to continue whipping up at least until the end of the day on Thursday, said Umansky. Homes in the Santiago Estates development in Sylmar were visibly burned. The video shows the surrounding hillsides engulfed by a raging wildfire. Other structures were spotted burning on nearby Via Santa Barbara.

Seventeen evacuation centers were opened throughout the San Fernando Valley, all of which were accepting evacuees and pets.
