Skirball Fire Pictures And Videos: Wildfire Rages Near 405 Freeway, Bel Air

Real estate agents of the wealthy Los Angeles Bel-Air neighborhood were watching homes and blocks of streets they know well go up in flames from their living room TVs this morning.

The fire erupted before dawn in the Sepulveda Pass, just up Interstate 405 from UCLA.

Colossal flames, blinding smoke, and ash greeted commuters early Wednesday morning (Dec. 6), when a brush fire consumed the hills east of the 405 freeway, prompting mandatory evacuation orders and the complete closures of the popular roadway, according to ABC7.

Meanwhile Rupert Murdoch's estate- which is one of the most expensive in the Los Angeles city limits- has also been evacuated.

Wind-driven fires have raced through California communities for the second time in two months, leaving hundreds of homes feared lost and uprooting tens of thousands of people.

Winds are now blowing toward the south, southwest, which has put the Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park and the Brentwood neighborhood north of Sunset Boulevard on notice. 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!"

A raging wildfire fueled by high winds created an wonderful - and terrifying - sight for morning commuters Wednesday on Interstate 405 in Los Angeles.

Jets beat the Chiefs, 38-31
And the Jets' 23rd-ranked offense proceeded to carve up the Chiefs' defense and propel NY to a 38-31 victory at MetLife Stadium. Revis, who played eight years over two stints with the Jets, started for the Chiefs, but spent the second half on the sideline.

Los Angeles Mission College in Sylmar was closed today.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared the county a disaster area due to the out-of-control blazes. Firefighters were battling on the scene, being supported by water-dropping helicopters. One firefighter was hospitalized after a bulldozer rolled over in the Sunland- Tujunga area, but the injury was not considered to be life- threatening. Along with the lack of much-needed rain, the Santa Ana winds have made it very hard to contain and put out the fires.

Thomas was the largest of a number of wildfires that broke out across Southern California following the onset of the Santa Ana winds.

Farther north, in Santa Clarita, firefighters were making significant gains against the Rye fire that had burned toward Magic Mountain on Tuesday afternoon.

State fire authorities say the fire burning in Ventura County about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles is also considered a threat to 12,000 structures Wednesday.

Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck urged local residents to evacuate immediately if they were told to leave, noting that strong winds are expected to continue through at least Thursday.
