150-Acre Skirball Fire Spurs Evacuations, Freeway Closures In California

Creek Fire burns 1,000 acres in L.A. foothills Evacuation orders in place

The closure was between the 101 Freeway to the north and the 10 Freeway to the south.

Some 200 firefighters were deployed to the scene to combat the blaze, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

The fire had burned 7,000 acres and was 5% contained Wednesday morning, Medina said. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency as 27,000 people were evacuated from their homes, the Los Angeles Times reported.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas noted that red flag conditions are expected to remain in effect at least through Friday, with gusting Santa Ana winds presenting a continuing danger of rapidly spreading blazes. Firefighters worked against high winds, hampering their ability to contain the fires. Smoke had already spread throughout the west Los Angeles area from wildfires further north by Tuesday morning.

Sylmar resident Virginia Padilla, whose family owns a ranch in Sylmar, told NBC4 the fire killed at least 30 of the ranch's horses.

But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area. "Residents of Mandeville Canyon and Sullivan Canyon should be prepared for evacuation the department said".

Large-animal evacuation centers at Pierce College, the Los Angeles Equestrian Center and Hansen Dam Recreation Area quickly reached capacity. For small animals, shelters were in place at West Valley Animal Shelter, 20655 Plummer St., and the East Valley Animal Shelter, 14409 Vanowen St.

All Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools will be closed Wednesday due to new fire developments.

The crews were assigned to structure protection for both residential and business structures and could be in Los Angeles County for up to 14-days before returning home.
