The Getty Fire broke out near the Getty Museum early Monday morning and has resulted in the evacuation of 10,000 homes and more than 650 acres burned. Responders reported 5 percent containment as of Tuesday morning. 

Mayor Eric Garcetti signed an emergency declaration in order to offer the Los Angeles Fire Department more support as they battle the blaze. Although the winds died down a bit on Monday, Santa Ana wind conditions are expected to ramp up as the day goes on Tuesday and throughout the night, increasing wildfire risks. According to the Weather Channel, residents of Northern and Central California could expect more power shut offs as fires spread. We get the latest updates on the Getty Fire.
