Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Evacuation orders issued for nearly 200k as Los Angeles fires rage”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The fast-moving brush fire started around 5am local time on Wednesday near the Getty Center. At 7:30am, authorities ordered residents living south of Mulholland Drive, east of the 405, north of Sunset Boulevard, and west of Roscomare Road to evacuate their homes.

Residents living west of I-405 should also brace for evacuations, in case flames jump the freeway, officials said. The fire has now at least four burned homes in the upscale neighborhoods of Bel Air and Brentwood, KTLA reported.

#SantaAnaWinds will continue to elevate fire danger in Southern CA with expectant winds reaching 80 mph on Thursday. Any new fires will have extreme levels of fire growth potential.
