Reuters A building on the vineyard estate of media mogul Rupert Murdoch catches fire during the Skirball fire in Bel Air, a wealthy neighborhood on the west side of Los Angeles, Calif., Dec. 6, 2017.
Umansky, who has opened his home to one family and said another two were on their way, said the street most affected this morning was south Casiano Road in Bel-Air.
UPDATE: (7:10 a.m.) According to Los Angeles Mayor: 405 is closed in the Sepulveda Pass due to #SkirballFire east of the freeway.
"We have no reports of any civilian fatalities or injuries, which speaks to the fact people are evacuating", county Fire Chief Daryl Osby said. "With winds like this, it can be anything", Garcetti said, referring to the powerful Santa Ana winds that continued to blow across the region.
In the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles, the Creek Fire had blackened more than 11,000 acres and forced the evacuation of 2,500 homes and a convalescent center north of Interstate 210.
Other commuters also posted frightening videos of the wildfire. Residents living west of the 405 should brace for evacuations as well in the event the flames cross the freeway.
Fire Department spokesman Margaret Stewart says the fire was reported at 4:52 a.m. Wednesday and is burning uphill, driven by topography rather than winds. 220 Firefighters on scene.
It's one of a series of wildfires to have spread through southern California over the past three days, scorching 83,000 acres of land and forcing tens of thousands of people out of their homes, CNN reports. The fire briefly shut down access to the 5 Freeway from Highway 126 and triggered mandatory evacuations.
