  • Brush fire erupts near Getty Center in 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.
