Los Angeles is up in flames and ritzy homes are ablaze

Creek Fire Forces Hundreds of Evacuations 210 Freeway Closure

According to the Los Angeles Times, authorities have ordered the evacuation of all homes between Mulholland Drive on the north, Sunset Boulevard on the south, Roscomare Road on the east and the 405 Freeway on the west.

Three firefighters were injured and hospitalized in stable condition, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The fire is northeast of the Getty Center and east of the San Diego Freeway. "We are a resilient city, we are a strong city, we are a capable city".

Wind-driven fires have raced through California communities for the second time in two months, leaving hundreds of homes feared lost and uprooting tens of thousands of people.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said more than 230,000 people had evacuated Los Angeles and Ventura counties. "Watching through the windows, there is a lot of smoke", said Berry, who fled his home immediately to a safe area.

The home of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, located on a vineyard outside of Los Angeles, is "burning down" in Southern California's wildfires, according to an NBC News report on Wednesday.

Some 1,000 firefighters battled to save homes, with one suffering a minor injury, Welsbie said.

California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency over the area Tuesday, announcing: "This fire is very risky and spreading rapidly".

Firefighters were also on the scene of the Rye fire - which had grown to 7,000 acres in the Santa Clarita area - as well as the Creek fire north of downtown Los Angeles that had grown to more than 11,000 acres. Many were evacuated from the nearby homes, including Chelsea Handler.

The fire affected a number of schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

"Winds have died down to allow fire department to get some control, but high winds/Santa Ana winds coming tonight", Freeman said via text message. "With winds like this, it can be anything", Garcetti said, referring to the powerful Santa Ana winds that continued to blow across the region. The Strike team was assigned to the Creek Fire in Los Angeles County.

Mandatory evacuations have been ordered in an exclusive ridge-top neighbourhood in Los Angeles as a risky new wildfire burns in Southern California.

State fire authorities say the fire burning in Ventura County about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles is also considered a threat to 12,000 structures Wednesday.
