Current Wildfire and Smoke Conditions

UPDATED: November 19, 2018 at 11:00 a.m.

Our thoughts are with the heroic first responders and firefighters; our neighbors in the City of Malibu and Ventura County; and, the Los Angeles County residents who have been impacted by wildfires.

As the official destination marketing organization for Los Angeles, visitor safety is our utmost priority. We work closely with local, state, and federal officials as well as with our partners to ensure that we collectively deliver on this objective. 

At this time, there is no structural or logistical impact to the City of Los Angeles that would affect visitors, and smoke impacts are limited. 

We encourage visitors with plans involving Malibu hotels or attractions to reach out directly to those entities or visit their respective social pages for the most current and accurate information. While the Getty Villa is not threatened by the fire, the Villa will be closed to the public until further notice and at least through Thanksgiving Day to assist in the emergency response efforts.
