Fixed-wing aircraft are unable to fly and gusts of up to 45 miles per hour are being felt, LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas said. The Los Angeles Times reported that several homes in the Bel-Air neighborhood were seen burning as the fire continues to grow from 50 acres.

Southern California is suffering an outbreak of large wildfires, thanks in part to strong Santa Ana winds and dry conditions that are expected to persist through most of the week. Fire officials said a firefighter was injured when the bulldozer he was operating overturned in an attempt to try to cut fire lines on the steep hillsides. The Los Angeles Police Department was on a citywide tactical alert, which allows commanders maximum flexibility in deploying resources.

As the fire burns northeast of the Getty Center and east of the 405 (San Diego) Freeway, the museum and other Center facilities are closed to the public. "Residents of Mandeville Canyon and Sullivan Canyon should be prepared for evacuation the department said". Helicopters on sight. Evacuation centers set up at rec centers.

The Associated Press reports a new blaze erupted near Los Angeles in the Ventura, Calif., area early Wednesday. The Pomona Fairplex and the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster also opened stables for evacuated animals.

All Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools will be closed Wednesday due to new fire developments. All North Bound lanes of the 405 are closed in the area.
