  • Getty Museum holds fast against fire threat for now

Los Angeles fire authorities closed down the freeway shortly thereafter, disrupting the morning commute for hundreds of thousands of people traveling between Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. The 405 Freeway in Bentwood has been closed as crews try to tend to the blaze.

Schools were closed in the area and some local residents were ordered to evacuate. Those winds have since settled down, according to Curbed, but mandatory evacuation orders were issued for an area of Bel Air south of Mulholland Drive, North Sunset Boulevard, the 405 and west of Roscomare Road, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The blaze was in the Sepulveda Pass near the Getty Center and the Skirball Cultural Center and caused the closure of portions of the highway. It remained unclear whether any structures had been damaged or destroyed in the fire.

More than 220 firefighters are on the scene, with assistance from a water-dropping helicopter from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Kim said, "I pray everyone in Los Angeles is safe from these fires and THANK YOU to all of the fire fighters working so hard to keep everyone safe!"

Nearly 200,000 people lost power in Ventura County on Tuesday, making it challenging for the 1,100 firefighters to put out the flames. "It's critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so".
