Skirball Fire

Right now Los Angeles, California is enduring a crazy wildfire. The fire has already engulfed part of the 405 highway, a prominent highway in SoCal. A fire started in Ventura, Thomas Fire, and another one near Bel Air, which is being called the Skirball Fire.

Museums have closed and celebrities are fleeing their mansions. According to The New York Times, the Ventura fire has already burned through 65,000 acres. While the Skirball Fire is much smaller it threatens a ton of structures including the Getty Museum.

The Getty center is worth $4 billion, NOT EVEN BEGINNING to include any of the artwork. I can even wrap my head around the potential for a loss on that scale. #Skirballfire

The residents of Los Angeles are tweeting out crazy photos and videos of what I imagine hell looks like. Huge walls of orange fire surrounded by mountains and palm trees. One Twitter user, @WLV_investor’s video is going viral. It shows the Ventura resident driving on the highway surrounded by burning mountains.

The images and videos from the fire look unreal.

The whole city of Los Angeles which is a big horizontal including many neighborhoods (I learned this last month) smells like smoke I am told. The wildfires are consuming everything in their path. Meanwhile, any word from Donnie? He’s busy setting fire to MidEast peace. pic.twitter.com/5Yz6V4LQXt

People are saying that LA looks like the inside of a volcano. Rain is not expected to hit the city soon and thousands are being told to evacuate. Except for UCLA, the university told students that class is optional and is up to the students’ professors.

Revised fire advisory: Except for UCLA Health, all other staff, faculty and students who are off campus should not attempt to come to campus until the situation is resolved. Classes are optional and students should check with their instructors.

I cancelled finals today because #SkirballFire unsafe. @UCLA don't force faculty to make the call, you need to close campus or give guidance @UCLAnewsroom
