Firefighters gain upper hand over Getty fire
Officials said containment of the blaze, which quickly lapped up a hillside during the height of Friday's rush-hour commute and prompted temporary closure of the Getty Center, remained at 40%, a figure reached by Friday night.
“The most important thing is that there were no injuries, no loss of life, no damage to structures,” said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brain Humphrey.
He said firefighters would continue to battle the blaze and full containment was expected Sunday.
Temperatures in the San Gabriel Valley could rise as high 104 degrees, with the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood Hills seeing a forecast 105 and 107, respectively.
