LA's Getty Center was built with fire protection in mind

'Creek Fire' burns 4000 acres above Sylmar and prompts evacuations

Fueled by high winds, the blaze dubbed the Creek fire was reported at 3:42 a.m. near Gold Creek and Little Tujunga roads, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, which was assisting the U.S. Forest Service and the Los Angeles Fire Department in battling the flames. One of many dramatic videos uploaded by commuters passing the fire in the early morning hours ominously captures the highway exit sign for Getty Center Drive against a backdrop of a hillside blanketed in flames. The winds died down overnight, and that helped keep the fire from spreading, Los Angeles Fire Department Assistant Chief Armando Hogan said.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, one of the private properties damaged by the Skirball fire is the $28.8-million winery and estate of News Corp.

"All of a sudden I see from the other side fire came to our side, so scary", said Adrine Davityan, who owns a home in Shadow Hills. "We're doing everything we can now to maintain public safety". "And they were like, 'Get out, get out, get out, '" Patricia Padilla told the Los Angeles Times. The fire, which had zero containment, destroyed at least 150 structures and was threatening 12,000 others. By noon Wednesday it had scorched 14,000 acres and forced the evacuation of 110,000 people.

"In a wind-driven event, wind is king", Hogan said. The Santa Anas are strong, dry winds that high-pressure systems push from east to west, from the mountains and desert areas down into the Los Angeles area. Air filtration systems are protecting the galleries from smoke. Classes were canceled at all schools in the Ventura Unified School District on Wednesday.
