I hope the Getty Center is OK. The fire is across the 405 from it currently but that could change as we all know. It contains priceless art and artifacts that cannot be replaced. Let's hope they can save people's homes as well!
any word on how the fires started?
My daughter lives in Irvine, some 20 miles south-ish and they just have smoke. I’ve visited the Getty Center and it is amazing. Prayers for all in LA, Ventura, and SB counties.
This isn’t the first time that the Getty has been endangered by fire. Maybe that wasn’t the best place to put something like that...
“said the entire time they have been there (since Monday) the smoke has been terrible. Most people have been wearing masks.”
Much schadenfreude about this what with California’s phobia about someone lighting up a cigarette 100 yards away. In a couple of days these fools have inhaled more second hand smoke than a lifetime in normal, well ventilated smoking bars.
The Getty Center seems to be out of the way of the fire, but several homes in Bel-Air have already burned and many more are threatened. Firefighters are mounting an impressive effort from the ground and the air to knock this fire down before the heavy winds kick up this afternoon.
We’re looking at the possibility of a major disaster in West Los Angeles. Please God, they can get this thing under control very soon.
?I hope the Getty Center is OK.”
Just heard on FBN that Getty now is threatened.
