The Skirball fire is 5% contained after burning 475 acres, destroying at least four homes and damaging other structures in Bel-Air, according to an update released Thursday morning.
The fire prompted a mass evacuation of the upscale neighborhood and closed the 405 Freeway for several hours.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said it remains on the scene trying to contain the fire.
