Our thoughts are with first responders, our neighbors in Ventura County, and the Los Angeles county residents currently impacted by wildfires.
There are currently four fires, all of which are centered in residential areas: the Thomas Fire is in Ventura County (10% containment), 64 miles Northwest of Downtown Los Angeles; the Creek fire is in the San Fernando Valley (40% containment), 30 miles North of Downtown Los Angeles; the Rye fire, 40 miles Northwest of Los Angeles (35% containment); and the Skirball fire, near the Getty Center (30% containment).
