  • Brush fire erupts near Getty Center in Los Angeles

All lanes of the freeway were shut down in the area in both directions as the morning rush hour got under way, causing massive traffic delays on both sides of the main artery between the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles.

All the fires were driven by the strongest seasonal Santa Ana winds so far this year.

According to a report from the museum on its Twitter account Wednesday morning, "Air filtration systems are protecting the galleries from smoke". Roads affected include Casiano Road, Moraga Drive and Linda Flora Drive.

No injuries or structural damage is reported, although some homes in the Bel-Air neighborhood and the Getty Center are threatened.

The Rye Fire, which prompted a closure of I-5 at the Grapevine, has burned 7,000 and was 5 percent surrounded.

The fire jumped Highway 101 to a rocky beach northwest of Ventura, bringing new evacuations, though officials said the sparse population and lack of vegetation in the area meant it was not overly unsafe, and the highway was not closed.

Fire officials are dealing with unusually high winds paired with extremely dry vegetation.

The fire is just under five miles away from UCLA, which chose to cancel classes for the day. The fire is burning to the east side of the freeway, while the Getty Center is located on the west side.

The Creek Fire started at 3:43 a.m.

The fire was first reported around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday east of the 405 and north of Sunset Boulevard. The fire department has issued mandatory evacuations for the neighborhood.

The Getty Center was already set to be closed Wednesday due to the other wild fires burning in Southern California. "We continue to monitor the situation and will issue updates as we have them".
