  • Creek Fire burns 1,000 acres in L.A. foothills Evacuation orders in place

A wildfire that destroyed homes in the Sepulveda Pass and Bel-Air was about 20 percent contained Thursday.

The Thomas Fire raged in the foothills above and in the city of Ventura some 50 miles (80 km) northwest of Los Angeles, fire officials said late Tuesday.

The fire, which was entirely uncontained, was being whipped by unpredictable Santa Ana winds, which blow in from the California desert.

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.

As massive fires rage to the north and east of Los Angeles, a brush fire has broken out east of the 405 freeway near homes and cultural institutions.

According to Curbed LA, the fire began at 4 a.m. burning 150 acres.

Other agencies assisting include the U.S. Forest Service, Los Angeles County Fire Department and Cal Fire.

"Strong winds overnight creating extreme fire danger".

The Getty Center said on Twitter that its galleries are protected from the smoke by an air filtration system. Santa Monica-Malibu schools are all closed, in addition to most private schools in the area such as John Thomas Dye and Buckley.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti declared a local State of Emergency Wednesday because of the Skirball Fire. There's also the Ventura County fire, the Sylmar fire, the Santa Clarita fire and the San Bernardino fire. But by Thursday morning, firefighters said they were contending mostly with hotspots rather than large flames.

"But Cal Fire suspects the true number is hundreds more; firefighters just haven't been able to get into areas to know for sure".

US President Donald Trump tweeted a message of "thoughts and prayers" to California as it nears the end of its deadliest year ever for wildfires.
