Los Angeles Skirball fire – 6th December 2017 – 405 Freeway
Firefighters are battling yet another wildfire in Southern California, in addition to the three other major fires burning in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
This fire, known as the Skirball Fire (also being called the Bel Air Fire) is located in Los Angeles and has burned 150 acres along with four to six structures, according to the Los Angeles Times. Northbound Interstate 405 has been closed from the 10 Freeway to the 101 Freeway.
The Skirball fire, in West Los Angeles County, is threatening the posh neighborhoods Bel Air and Mandeville Canyon.
Currently there are evacuations in place for “all homes between Mulholland Drive on the north, Sunset Boulevard on the south, Roscomare Road on the east and the 405 Freeway on the west,” the Los Angeles Times reports. Earlier in the morning, authorities ordered evacuations along Casiano Road, Moraga Drive and Linda Flora Drive.
