Creek Fire forces mandatory evacuations affecting 100000 people

A brush fire that broke out in the Kagel Canyon area above Sylmar, charred almost 11,400, destroyed about 30 homes and prompted the evacuation of more than 100,000 people from their homes, raged on for a second day Wednesday even though air crews made overnight water drops in a bid to douse the flames.

Nicknamed the Skirball Fire, it was reported at 5 a.m. near Mulholland Drive, a five-minute drive from the Skirball Cultural Center.

Thousands of people have fled their homes since the fires broke out on Monday.

The newspaper said evacuations have been ordered in the Sullivan and Mandeville canyon area. It remained unclear whether any structures had been damaged or destroyed in the fire. No injuries were reported.

One resident who was evacuated told KTLA he was surprised at how quickly the winds shifted.

Padilla said she was woken up at approximately 4 a.m.by the Los Angeles County Fire Department's orders to evacuate immediately.

"This fire is very risky and spreading rapidly, but we'll continue to attack it with all we've got", Brown said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Many schools and local businesses in both counties have been closed. At least 1,000 firefighters were deployed to the scene.

Southern California is suffering an outbreak of large wildfires, thanks in part to strong Santa Ana winds and dry conditions that are expected to persist through most of the week.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for homes on Moraga Drive, Linda Flora Drive and Casiano Road down to Bellagio Road.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas warned that the battle was likely to continue until at least Friday.

All lanes of the freeway were shut down in the area in both directions as the morning rush hour got under way, causing massive traffic delays on both sides of the main artery between the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles. Firefighters worked against high winds, hampering their ability to contain the fires.
