Brushfire Burns Near Getty Museum

A wildfire near Los Angeles burned 100 acres of brush and grass near the world-famous Getty art museum, fire officials said.

There were no injuries or damages reported in relation to the brushfire that started two miles from the museum around 12:30 a.m.

Nearby Interstate 405 was closed for about four hours but reopened for morning rush hour. Despite the freeways reopening, traffic was still congested as drivers sought ways around the fire.

400 firefighters were brought in the help contain the blaze.

The firefighters worked to seven hours for before the fire was declared knocked down at 8:16 a.m., Fire Department spokesman Ron Myers said. Crews were expected to stay near the museum, Myers said.

The Getty Museum is located approximately 10 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

The New York Times later reported Friday that a brushfire was fully contained.
