Local news affiliate NBC4 reported Wednesday that the estate, located on a vineyard outside of Los Angeles and across the 405 freeway from the Getty Museum, was "burning down".

The crews were assigned to structure protection for both residential and business structures and could be in Los Angeles County for up to 14-days before returning home. Some 50 acres had burned within a matter of just two hours as Los Angeles firefighters contend with wind gusts of up to 30 mph.

Hundreds of homes have been destroyed and a further 12,000 buildings and structures are threatened by Thomas alone, officials said.

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

According to LAPD: Residents by Casiano Rd, Moraga, & Linda Flora in West Los Angeles being evacuated/are evacuated for the 405 brush fire.

More than 125 firefighters were on the scene and that water-dropping helicopters were being used, the newspaper said.

But she said that while Facebook made the app "with the best of intentions", it's not yet known how people will actually use it. Parents are the ones who create the account, since you can't technically have a Facebook unless you're 13.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered in Kagel Canyon and some other nearby areas.

It has been reported that Rupert Murdoch's Bel Air estate is in the line of fire.

The fire was zero percent contained as of Wednesday morning, Terrazas said. The Southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway are now open through the Sepulveda pass, but the Northbound lanes are closed. That blaze destroyed about 500 homes and led to various policy changes, including a prohibition on wood-shingle roofs and the strict requirement to remove brush from around properties.

A temporary evacuation center was set up at Hansen Dam.

If the fire crosses the 405 freeway, it will hit one of the highest priced residential areas of Brentwood, she added. "With winds like this, it can be anything", Garcetti said, referring to the powerful Santa Ana winds that continued to blow across the region. The closure was between the 101 Freeway to the north and the 10 Freeway to the south.
