Fires scorch Sylmar and Ventura County

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.

UPDATE (9:50 am) Up to 150 acres and 0% contained. Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day, but there was no immediate word if classes would resume today.

The fire is northeast of the Getty Center and east of the San Diego Freeway.

Officials were checking on several reports of people being trapped as a result of the fire, but those have not been confirmed, Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervisor Stafford said.

Shortly after 6 a.m., mandatory evacuations were ordered for Moraga Drive, Linda Flora Drive, and Casiano Road, down to Bellagio Road, according to the LAFD. The La Tuna Fire in September also sent massive amounts of smoke into the air above Los Angeles and forced the evacuation of hundreds of homes.

The exception to the evacuation order was the Bel Air Crest housing development, which was not threatened, Garcetti said.

Citywide, about 600 officers were assigned to coordinate security and various "firefighting events, " Beck said.

Firefighters watch as a structure is engulfed in flames in the Shadow Hills neighborhood south of Sylmar as the Creek Fire burns Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017.

Fifty-two fire engines were deployed to the scene. Winds in the area were blowing at 25 miles per hour. Terrazas urged people to monitor news broadcasts and social media, including www.LAFD.org.

Large-animal evacuation centers at Pierce College, the Los Angeles Equestrian Center and Hansen Dam Recreation Area quickly reached capacity. The 405 Freeway in Bentwood has been closed as crews try to tend to the blaze.

A fire east of the 405 freeway near the Getty Center has closed the 405 freeway in both directions north of the 10 freeway, says the LA Times. The fire was reported just before 4 AM.
