"This area should be ReadySetGo and be prepared for possible evacuation for Skirball Fire in December 2017", a notification on Google Maps read.

California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency over the area Tuesday, announcing: "This fire is very unsafe and spreading rapidly". A second firefighter was also injured, with Terrazas telling ABC7 the firefighter was burned when a propane tank exploded. The 405, a major freeway servicing Los Angeles, has completely shut down between the 101 and the 10 freeways due to the spreading fire.

Some 105 patients were being voluntarily evacuated from Mountain View Convalescent Center on Fenton Ave in Sylmar, said LAFD, noting that they had no reported injuries from any civilians. The estate is located near the 405 freeway, which authorities have closed.

The fire led to the closure of multiple freeways, include the very congested 405.

But by early afternoon, the eastern border of the evacuation area had been enlarged to the Haynes Canyon area.

- Mason Recreation Center, 10500 Mason Ave., Chatsworth.

Authorities have opened 16 evacuation centers throughout the Los Angeles area.

For small animals, shelters were in place at West Valley Animal Shelter, 20655 Plummer St., and the East Valley Animal Shelter, 14409 Vanowen St. 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!" Classes were canceled at all schools in the Ventura Unified School District on Wednesday.

"Winds have died down to allow fire department to get some control, but high winds/Santa Ana winds coming tonight", Freeman said via text message.

A brush fire has erupted on the west side of Los Angeles along Interstate 405 in Sepulveda Pass.

Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day.
