Creek Fire Chars Nearly 11400 Acres in Sylmar

Mandatory evacuations are in place in Bel Air this morning as a fast-moving brush fire that erupted near the 405 freeway near the Getty Center climbed up the hillside, threatening an unknown number of homes.

The closure was bounded by the 101 Freeway to the north and the 10 Freeway to the south. DEVELOPING: More details will be added to this report as they become available. Those in the area were ordered by the Los Angeles Fire Department to evacuate.

The fire had burned about 50 acres and is quickly spreading, Stewart said.

Fire officials said there were two firefighter injuries, including one who was hurt when the bulldozer he was operating overturned. She and her family were given just enough time to gather some necessities but not their horses, Padilla said.
