  • A brush fire in the Bel Air area is seen burning near a structure

Brown Jr. issued a state of emergency in Los Angeles County due to the Creek and Rye fires Tuesday.

The fire has destroyed at least 30 homes so far, and burned up upwards of 12,000 acres.

As of early afternoon, the fire had scorched an estimated 11,000 acres. All were in stable condition, with at least two of them expected to be released from hospitals Wednesday, said Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department. The Los Angeles Police Department was on a citywide tactical alert, which allows commanders maximum flexibility in deploying resources. One firefighter was hospitalized after a bulldozer rolled over in the Sunland- Tujunga area, but the injury was not considered to be life- threatening.

The 210 interchange with the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway was also closed.

Thousands remained evacuated as containment inched up to 10 percent in the Creek fire, which continued to smolder near Sylmar Thursday, officials said. As the fire expanded and jumped south of the Foothill Freeway, so did the mandatory evacuation area. "To anyone in the region, it is imperative that you comply with evacuation orders and call 9-1-1 if you need immediate assistance".

Most of the roughly 400 wild and exotic animals at the sanctuary were evacuated in recent days for their safety.

Horses and other large animals can be brought to the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center at 11127 Orcas Ave.in Sylmar and the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds at 2551 W. Avenue H, in Lancaster.

Numerous animals were being housed at Pierce College and the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, which were at capacity Wednesday afternoon and not accepting additional animals.
