Bars and Restaurants Close as Creek Fire Rages Across North LA

Los Angeles Fire

Thousands remained evacuated as containment inched up to 10 percent in the Creek fire, which continued to smolder near Sylmar Thursday, officials said.

Three firefighters were injured Tuesday, and were hospitalized in stable condition. She and her family were given just enough time to gather some necessities but not their horses, Padilla said.

The devastating blaze destroyed at least 30 homes and prompted mandatory evacuations that affected an estimated 150,000 residents, according to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Padilla's family owns more than 60 horses and said they will count how many of their equines survived the fire as soon as they are given the opportunity to do so.

Watchdog to investigate Momentum over election spending
Whether Momentum submitted a return that "was not a complete statement of payments made in respect of controlled expenditure". In November, Momentum said it had spent £38,743 on the general election campaign.

Sheriff's officials did not provide an update on the number of residents who remained evacuated, but on Thursday about 250,000 people were under evacuation orders.

Los Angeles Fire Fighters are fighting a fire that erupted Tuesday morning due to Santa Ana winds and has already burned 2,500 acres in Sylmar County.

Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas warned that the battle was likely to continue until at least Friday. By late morning, evacuations had been ordered in the area north of the 210 Freeway from Glenoaks Boulevard on the west to the border with La Crescenta on the east.

As the fire burned on Tuesday, the Foothill (210) Freeway was closed in both directions between the Golden State (5) Freeway and the Glendale (2) Freeway, but the freeway had been reopened by Wednesday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol. Hansen Dam Recreation Area was also being used as an evacuation center for large animals. One of those horses, named Chaparra, suffered the most severe burn injuries and is being treated at Pierce College around the clock. Once those shelters reached capacity, pet owners were directed to take their large animals to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. For details, call (661) 948- 6060.
