According to the Times, the new fires covered as much as 50 acres by 6:20 a.m. PT, but Los Angeles fire officials say 25 miles per hour winds could make it spread.

Several homes in Los Angeles' Bel-Air neighborhood were burning, and the 405 was closed in both directions.

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. The fire is now estimated at 50,500 acres and is being pushed by strong east winds.

Moraga Estate, the only working winery in Bel-Air and home of Twenty-First Century Fox and Fox News Chairman Rupert Murdoch, appears to be the latest casualty of wildfires spread by the Santa Ana winds in Southern California.

The Creek Fire was reported as a 1,000-acre brush fire at 3:42 a.m. on Tuesday near Gold Creek and Little Tujunga by the Angeles National Forest. "We don't want to hamper our personnel and not send them".


Misraje, who lives in the hills herself off Mulholland Drive, was staying put and telling her members and any clients to listen to authorities, stay in their homes if their area was not being evacuated to keep the roads free, and to stay inside to avoid the contaminated air.

But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area.

About 105 patients were voluntarily evacuated from Mountain View Convalescent Center in Sylmar.

Other commuters also posted frightening videos of the wildfire.

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. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's station in Santa Clarita reported its 911 emergency phone system had failed due to a power outage. Needless to say, the Skirball Center will remain closed as well.
