  • Getty Museum holds fast against fire threat for now

Firefighters were said to be hiking up the hill from the Getty Center exit, with flames raging near the renowned art museum, next to the northbound 405 freeway, to survey the extent of the fires, which are reportedly zero percent contained.

A wildfire broke out around 4:52 A.M. PT on December 6 near the Skirball Center and Getty Center in the Sepulveda Pass of Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

A 1,000-acre fire blazed through the Angeles National Forest Tuesday, Dec.5, trapping several people in Sylmar, and forcing mandatory evacuations, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Stunned motorists found the hillside ablaze and gridlock below as fire raced towards the homes of numerous city's rich and famous.

North winds of 8 to 14 miles per hour and a relative humidity in the low 20's caused the fire to spread rapidly to the south.

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

"It's been years since anything here has burned at all", Los Angeles Fire Department Capt. Cody Weireter told The Times.

Schools were closed in the area and some local residents were ordered to evacuate.

The 405 is closed in both directions from the 10 to the 101.

Estimated at 50 acres and fueled by 25 miles per hour winds, the blaze was expected to grow, Los Angeles authorities told the newspaper. Part of I-405 was shut down as flames quickly spread across the steep slopes of Sepulveda Pass, through the Santa Monica Mountains where ridge tops are covered with expensive homes. The California Highway Patrol said the freeway has reopened, but some off-ramps remains closed.

The fire was burning in the same general area as the devastating Bel Air Fire of 1961. A lot of the fire is topography-driven, which already becomes unsafe.
