California Fires

They have also been posting images of the inferno as it devastates Los Angeles.

"It's a very hard moment, but we will get through this", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Tuesday, the New York Post reported.

"This has only just begun", he said Tuesday. Four homes were destroyed and two others may have been damaged, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said at a roughly 9:30 a.m. briefing, but more structures could be seen burning as the fire continued its march. Residents living west of the 405 should brace for evacuations, too, should flames jump the freeway, officials say.

Karen Misraje, a partner and branch manager with Partners' Trust, now part of Pacific Union International, and president of the Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors, said firefighters would be informed by the 1961 fire in Bel-Air.

More than 600 firefighters battled the blaze amid strong Santa Ana winds, some gusting at 70 miles per hour. County fire Chief Daryl Osby said two of his firefighters were injured. The Los Angeles Police Department was on a citywide tactical alert, which allows commanders maximum flexibility in deploying resources. The 405 Freeway in Bentwood has been closed as crews try to tend to the blaze.

Mandatory Evacuations are in effect.

But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area. Homes in the area were being evacuated, including those on Bundy Canyon Road and Mandeville Canyon Road.

As an inferno rages in the Los Angeles area, photos and video posted to the internet are making the predawn commute look downright apocalyptic. Once those shelters reached capacity, pet owners were directed to take their large animals to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. Both were closed for the day, as was Santa Monica College and all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu school district. Northbound lanes remain closed.
