A stubborn, wind-driven brush fire that raged through the hills above Sylmar and threatened thousands of homes continued spreading Wednesday, with more than 100,000 residents remaining under evacuation orders.

The fire began at around 4:00 a.m. local time, Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Deputy David Richardson said in a Tuesday afternoon press conference. That is double the containment figure from Wednesday.

And by about 7 a.m., mandatory evacuations had been ordered in Little Tujunga Canyon, Kagel Canyon, and Lopez Canyon, according to the sheriff's department. Padilla said she and her family were able to get out of her home just in time Tuesday morning but were not able to take their horses with them.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger urged residents in the area with horses and other large animals to consider moving them to alternate shelter even before evacuation orders come through, given how quickly the fire is moving.

Terrazas warned that the battle was likely to continue until at least Friday. The LAPD was placed on a citywide tactical alert, which allows commanders maximum flexibility in deploying resources. The eastbound 210 Freeway exits at Osborne Avenue, Wheatland Avenue, Sunland Boulevard, and La Tuna Canyon Road are also closed. A map of now evacuated areas and shelters can be found here.

Evacuation centers were opened at the Sylmar Recreation Center at 13109 Borden Ave. and at the Branford Recreation Center at 13306 Branford St.in Arleta.

Some voluntary evacuations were recommended in the general area, including east of Veterans Park to Pacoima Canyon; Between Sayre and Polk streets north of the 210 Freeway; and between Polk and Bledsoe streets. The fire also forced a mass evacuation of large animals, primarily horses but also others such as alpacas.

For small animals, shelters were in place at West Valley Animal Shelter, 20655 Plummer St.; East Valley Animal Shelter, 14409 Vanowen St.; and Sunland Park, 8651 Foothill Blvd, Sunland/Tujunga.

Twenty- one charter schools in the area also will be closed today. Information on Los Angeles Unified School District campuses can be found here.
