California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, freeing state funds and resources to assist the more than 1,000 firefighters battling the flames around the clock.

What's being called the "Skirball" fire for its location near the Skirball Cultural Center is covering 150 acres in Los Angeles-a separate blaze from the "Thomas" fire that broke out near Ventura earlier this week and has burned over 65,000 acres so far, The New York Times reported.

As of 7 p.m., the blaze had scorched 11,377 acres and remained at 0 percent containment.

A horse is evacuated along Osborne street at the Creek fire Tuesday morning.

Firefighters put out flames near a home along Kagel Canyon road at the Creek fire Tuesday morning.

The mayor urged residents to heed orders to evacuate - saying, "Do not wait". One was expected to be released Tuesday night, while another was set to be head home Wednesday.

"Do not expect to back tonight", Garcetti said.

Estimated at 50 acres and fueled by 25 miles per hour winds, the blaze was expected to grow, Los Angeles authorities told the newspaper.
