Fires have led to evacuations, road closures and air quality issues in Los Angeles.

Mayor Eric Garceti of Los Angeles said that while the Getty fire had burned 656 acres in West Los Angeles and was only 5 percent contained on Tuesday, "it's a good sign, actually, that it didn't grow by more"

Mr. Garcetti thanked residents who had remained away from their homes in the evacutation area. He said that firefighters had extinguished some flare-ups, and he warned that higher winds expected in the evening could pick up embers from the fire and deposit them on houses in the evacuation area, possibly igniting them while residents who did not evacuate were sleeping.
