Update: As of Wednesday, October 30, evacuation orders were lifted with the exception of a small area indicated in red.


Update: As of 8 a.m. Tuesday, the mandatory evacuation red zone was unchanged, with the exception of the Mountaingate community, which is now in the yellow warning zone.

The borders of the Mandatory Evacuation (RED) Zone are with the exception of the Mountaingate community:

  • Temescal Canyon Road is the West border
  • Sunset Boulevard is the South border
  • Mulholland Drive is the North border
  • 405 Freeway is the East border

A brush fire that ignited near the Getty Center at around 1:30 a.m. had grown to approximately 500 acres by 7 a.m., forcing mandatory evacuations in huge swaths of Brentwood, Mandeville Canyon, and Pacific Palisades.

As of 1 p.m. Monday, the boundaries of the mandatory evacuation zone are:

  • Temescal Canyon Road is the West border
  • Sunset Boulevard is the South border
  • Mulholland Drive is the North border
  • 405 Freeway is the East border

According to the LAFD’s website, people in the yellow evacuation warning zone should be “prepared to evacuate.”

Mayor Eric Garcetti, who appeared at a press conference this morning alongside fire officials and councilmembers Mike Bonin and Paul Koretz, signed an emergency declaration this morning to get increased resources for L.A. firefighters.

Shelters are currently open for evacuees, human and animal alike. Hansen Dam Recreation Center is the only one accepting large animals.

The fire’s namesake campus, as well as the Getty Villa, are closed today. Via instagram, the museum said, “Many have asked about the safety of the artwork. It is protected by state-of-the-art technology—the safest place for the art and library collections is inside.”
