"Thus far, their dedicated efforts have prevented the loss of life", said Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) on its official website. Kim said, "I pray everyone in Los Angeles is safe from these fires and THANK YOU to all of the fire fighters working so hard to keep everyone safe!"

UPDATE (9:50 am) Up to 150 acres and 0% contained.

The Moraga Estate, a large home and vineyard owned by Fox media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is also reportedly in the path of the flames, according to Bloomberg.

There are no reports of injuries, but the flames are dangerously close to the Getty Center and buildings nearby.

All Santa Monica-Malibu Los Angeles Unified School District schools will be closed Wednesday due to the fire. The fire is northeast of the Getty Center and east of the San Diego Freeway. This is now the fifth fire burning in the region. Residents for the area east of the 405, Mulholland to the North, Sunset to the South and Rosomare to the East were warned to prepare for an evacuation.

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

The fire began as crews are spread across Southern California fighting several brush fires, including the Thomas Fire, the Creek Fire, and the Rye Fire. Six fixed-wing aircraft and a number of helicopters were deployed to the scene, Garcetti said. "We are a resilient city, we are a strong city, we are a capable city".

It has been reported that Rupert Murdoch's Bel Air estate is in the line of fire. That blaze destroyed about 500 homes and led to various policy changes, including a prohibition on wood-shingle roofs and the strict requirement to remove brush from around properties. Before the freeway closing, a morning commuter captured terrifying footage of fire surrounding the freeway.

"There was three major fires, one in Ventura and two in Los Angeles County", stated Battalion Chief Ross Macumber.
