Dear Stakeholders and Friends:
We hope you and your loved ones are safe. We hope that this information will be of some value to you.
There is a fire ("Getty Fire") that began in the Sepulveda Pass at 1:30 am that has spread west and south to the hillside areas of Brentwood. Helicopters are dropping water. Planes cannot get into the air until daylight. Local schools will be closed today (see list below).
Homes have been lost on Tigertail Road, Skye, and Chicory Lane. Sepulveda Blvd. is closed through the Pass. LA City has issued evacuation orders: Mulholland to 405 to Sunset to Temescal/Topanga -- north of Sunset, south of Mulholland, west of 405 to Temescal/Topanga. Embers can be carried live up to a mile away which creates great risk for the entire Santa Monica Mountains area. DOT is on duty at Sunset to move the traffic out of the canyons and out of the area. Do not attempt to travel on Sunset Blvd. It is needed for evacuation traffic.Read More »
