Some residents remained under evacuation in Brentwood as firefighters continued to work on containment of the Getty fire, which broke out Monday near the Getty Center and burned 12 homes and 745 acres.

The fire was 30% contained as of Thursday morning, but firefighters remained concerned about red flag conditions that will continue through Thursday night.

Most evacuations were lifted Wednesday, but the following areas remained off-limits:

  • Tigertail Road at Deerbrook Lane to Chickory Lane
  • Stonehill Lane
  • Lindenwood Lane
  • Sky Lane
  • Canna Road
  • Chickory Lane
  • Bluestone Trace to Bluegrass Way
  • Bluegrass Lane

The Los Angeles Fire Department said residents could check online to determine whether their property is in an area that has been repopulated.

The fire was sparked when a tree branch fell on power lines, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Tuesday. The power lines are operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, according to a fire official. The agency said it was cooperating with the investigation.

Meanwhile, the Tick fire, which burned 29 homes in Canyon Country last week, is now 100% contained.
