Firefighters were said to be hiking up the hill from the Getty Center exit, with flames raging near the renowned art museum, next to the northbound 405 freeway, to survey the extent of the fires, which are reportedly zero percent contained.

The newspaper said evacuations have been ordered in the Sullivan and Mandeville canyon area.

As of 8:35 am Wednesday, the fire had grown to 11,377 acres per CALFIRE.

The fire was first reported around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday east of the 405 and north of Sunset Boulevard. Roads affected include Casiano Road, Moraga Drive and Linda Flora Drive.

The Skirball fire situation is rapidly evolving. Fire crews were hard at work trying to contain the blaze, but they were fighting a fire fueled 25 miles per hour winds.

The area is in the vicinity of the devastating 1961 "Bel Air fire" that destroyed about 500 homes.

All Santa Monica-Malibu Los Angeles Unified School District schools will be closed Wednesday due to the fire.

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.

The freeway was likely to be impacted for the rest of the morning, Stewart said.

A fire east of the 405 freeway near the Getty Center has closed the 405 freeway in both directions north of the 10 freeway, says the LA Times. These closures are causing massive gridlock in what is already one of the city's most congested intersections.

About 9 a.m., the southbound freeway was reopened, but some onramps and offramps remained closed in the area, as was a section of Mulholland Drive, the CHP reported.
