LAFD spokesman David Ortiz told the LA Times that some 200 firefighters had been dispatched to extinguish the blaze, which he characterized as “huge.”

Due to the size of the fire and the logistical issues necessary to put it out, the 101 Freeway nearby is closed in both directions, he said. The California Highway Patrol says that transition lanes between the 110 and 101 have also been shut down. No injuries have been reported.


Social media users in the city have been quick to post pictures of the pillar of fire reaching up into the night sky, with some taking a more ominous interpretation of the blaze.
