There were no immediate reports of injuries, but flames were threatening the famed Getty Center and adjacent buildings on its sprawling hillside campus. Video of the fires show that 4-6 homes in Bel Air have already begun to burn. The 405 Freeway in Bentwood has been closed as crews try to tend to the blaze.

The fire had burned about 50 acres, Stewart said.

The fire has been growing because of dry and windy conditions, which have spread hot embers across the area.

The Creek Fire started at 3:43 a.m. The fire reached 150 acres by 9:40 a.m. but is expected to grow due to 25 miles per hour winds. Residents of Mandeville Canyon and Sullivan Canyon should also be prepared to evacuate.

Power outages were widespread. The city of Los Angeles, the county and the governor of California have all declared emergencies related to the fire.
