The Creek Fire was the second blaze to erupt and is also considered a wildfire. Garcetti noted there are about 800 firefighters battling the fire in Los Angeles, and there have been no fatalities yet. The inferno has scorched more than 11,000 acres since it began, as it also jumped the nearby Interstate 210 freeway, forcing its closure.
The fire could reach the Simi Valley area due to heavy winds, the Simi Valley Police Department said in a statement. Rye Canyon Loop was also closed, along with state Route 126 from Copperhill Drive to the Golden State Freeway.
The Rye Fire was 5 percent contained Wednesday after it burned about 5,000 acres in Santa Clarita near Magic Mountain on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Homes on Moraga Drive, Linda Flora Drive, Casiano Road down to Bellagio Road, east of the 405, south of Mulholland Drive, North of Sunset Boulevard and west of Roscomare Road are now under mandatory evacuation orders.
