More than 125 city firefighters were on scene and the LAFD was being assisted with an additional helicopter from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, according to Stewart.

The L.A. Times reports: "The fire was estimated to cover some 50 acres by 6:20 a.m., but Los Angeles fire officials said it was being fueled by 25 miles per hour winds and would likely grow even more". Along with the lack of much-needed rain, the Santa Ana winds have made it very hard to contain and put out the fires.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was working to evacuate residents near the area of Lopez Canyon and Kagel Canyon, according to LA County Fire. The museum had already announced Tuesday that it would be closed today due to smoke from other area fires. The fire jumped the 210 Freeway and burned in Shadow Hills to the south, where residents scrambled to evacuate hundreds of horses, alpacas and other animals.

Southern California is suffering an outbreak of large wildfires, thanks in part to strong Santa Ana winds and dry conditions that are expected to persist through most of the week. Padilla said she and her family were able to get out of her home just in time but were not able to take their horses with them as they had to evacuate immediately when they were awakened Tuesday morning. Evacuations were initially ordered in the area north of the Foothill Freeway from Glenoaks Boulevard on the west to the border with La Crescenta on the east.
