LA Now covers the 1o acre brushfire near the Getty Center that has caused the museum to close for the day:
Ron Hartwig, vice president of communications, says they are evacuating employees and visitors from the Getty Center. Visitors are taking the tram to get their cars, then they are driving up the hill to the South Gate, to keep the main entrance clear. It’s just a precaution, he says. The fire is on the hillside west of the entrance.
At Mount St. Mary’s, no classes were in session, but 200 people renting out facilities there are being removed. About 100 staffers were also taken out.
Updated at 3 p.m.: The Getty Center is closed for the day. Officials said it could reopen Thursday if the fire is extinguished.
