The Skirball Fire in LA Is Burning Down Rupert Murdoch's House

A firefighter battles flames in Lake View Terrace on Tuesday

The 405 North freeway remains closed between the 10 and the 101 freeways, making it challenging to access some local businesses.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered in Kagel Canyon and some other nearby areas. The blaze was in the Sepulveda Pass near the Getty Center and the Skirball Cultural Center and caused the closure of portions of the highway. Some area restaurants chose to remain open amid the fire and smoke-filled skies, while others closed shop for the day.

A 1,000-acre fire blazed through the Angeles National Forest Tuesday, Dec.5, trapping several people in Sylmar, and forcing mandatory evacuations, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

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