A fire in the Sepulveda Pass began as a small brusher, only growing to around 10 acres at 3:30 p.m., according to the LA Fire Department. By 4:15 p.m., they said it was 80 acres. Still, no structures have been damaged and no injuries have been reported. As the day moves into late afternoon and nighttime, fire officials are concerned over sundowner winds that could flare up the fire into a larger one. 250 fire fighters are on the ground with four helicopters assisting. Both the Getty Center Museum and Mount St. Mary's College have been evacuated. As the fire continues, more updates will be posted at this link.
