The so-called Skirball Fire was reported shortly before 5 a.m. near Mulholland Drive, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The fire is northeast of the Getty Center and east of the San Diego Freeway. Santa Ana winds and low humidity are making the firefight hard. Both were closed for the day, as was Santa Monica College and all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu school district. Meanwhile, several other wildfires were burning in other parts of the Southland, including the 65,000-acre Thomas fire in Ventura County, the 11,000-acre Creek Fire in near Sylmar and Lake View Terrace, and the 7,000-acre Rye Fire in the Santa Clarita area.

The fire is occurring while fighters across Southern California are battling a blaze in Ventura County. Evacuations have also been ordered in the Shallow Hills area, between Wentworth Street to the north, Wheatland Avenue on the west and Sunland Boulevard to the south.

Osby said high winds hindered the deployment of firefighting fixed- wing aircraft, although more than a half-dozen water-dropping helicopters were being used in the effort.

The fire was burning in the same general area as the devastating Bel Air Fire of 1961. As of 5:40 a.m., zero percent of the blaze has been contained.

The weather conditions were impeding efforts to contain and extinguish the out-of-control blaze, as strong, gusty winds fueled the "extreme" fire behavior, according to the inciweb incident information website. Winds in the area were blowing at 25 miles per hour.

Two evacuation centers were opened: Sylmar Recreation Center at 13109 Borden Ave.in Sylmar, and Sunland Senior Center at 8640 Fenwick St.in Sunland.

"Driving to LAX just as they're closing the 405 for this roaring hillside fire near the Getty exit", Rebecca Keegan, the Vanity Fair correspondent tweeted Wednesday.

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.
