Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Tuesday evacuation orders were affecting about 150,000 residents, but a Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman put the number at around 120,000. Although numerous homes were charred on Tuesday, firefighters were still dousing hot spots that flared up on Thursday morning.

The fire, dubbed the Creek Fire, has scorched 2,500 acres since it erupted just north of the 210 Freeway, the Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted about 7 a.m. Tuesday's warnings are scheduled to expire at 6 p.m., but forecasters say Santa Ana winds could persist into Friday or Saturday.

According to Curbed LA, the fire prompted mandatory evacuations throughout the area.

Seventeen evacuation centers were opened throughout the San Fernando Valley, and all were accepting evacuees and pets. Eater learned of a few restaurant closures in the area, including the Hideaway Bar and Grill in Sylmar, which is directly in the fire's perimeter. The fire also forced a mass evacuation of large animals, primarily horses but also others such as alpacas. Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day, but there was no immediate word if classes would resume today.
