The Creek Fire in the mountains above Sylmar has burned 11,000 acres and forced the closure of the 210 freeway and the interchange with the 118 freeway.

A brush fire erupted near Rye Canyon Loop in Santa Clarita on Tuesday morning. About 775 firefighters are on scene.

Hundreds of firefighters, including air units, worked to control the fire amid gusting Santa Ana winds. Newhall Ranch Road westbound between Rye Canyon Road and Interstate 5 has reopened, but the eastbound side of the road is still closed.

It was first reported about 5 acres but quickly grew to 200 acres and the response was upgraded, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported.

A 7,000-acre brush fire in Santa Clarita remained at 5 percent containment Wednesday prompting authorities to issue an advisory to residents of nearby Simi Valley.

Gusty winds kept firefighting aircraft grounded and may have also been the cause of a power outage that interrupted service to about 2,090 customers in the Santa Clarita area.

The Rye Fire started about 9:55 a.m.in the 25100 block of Rye Canyon Road, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Evacuations are still in effect for the Westridge community in Stevenson Ranch and the Valencia Travel Village RV Resort.

Rye Canyon Loop to Kelly Johnson Parkway is also closed. Westridge High School, Rancho Pico Middle School and Oak Hills Elementary School were evacuated as well.

Evacuation centers were established at Valencia High School at 27801 Dickason Drive and College of the Canyons, 6455 Rockwell Canyon Road. College of the Canyons canceled classes at both of its campuses Tuesday night.
