As of 6 p.m. (local time) last night, the Getty Fire has reached 618 acres, with 5 percent contained and with the expected full containment date unknown, according to an official report posted yesterday on the official Twitter account of the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD).

Several homes in Brentwood and the surrounding hillside areas were affected, with mandatory evacuation orders in place, according to several posts on Twitter documenting scenes from the fire.

More than 10,000 structures have been affected by the Getty Fire, with 8 residences destroyed and 6 damaged, LAFD confirmed on its official website.

"Aircraft and dozer teams are continuing to strengthen containment lines. We continue to monitor the weather with a Santa Ana wind event scheduled to begin again tomorrow [Tuesday] at 11 PM. Low relative humidity and gusty winds will once again pose a threat for firefighters Tuesday night through mid-day Thursday," the LAFD noted in the report.

The department also issued red flag parking restrictions, which restricts cars from being parked in areas with extremely high fire hazards.

"As of 8PM tomorrow, October 29, 2019, the City of Los Angeles is ACTIVATING the red flag parking restrictions. Please note, this goes into effect at 8PM and not 8AM. For the current status of the red flag parking restrictions, you may visit www.lafd.org/redflag," the LAFD said on its website.
