'Creek Fire' burns 4000 acres above Sylmar and prompts evacuations

According to the Times, the new fires covered as much as 50 acres by 6:20 a.m. PT, but Los Angeles fire officials say 25 miles per hour winds could make it spread.

Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day.

While the blaze in Sylmar began spreading rapidly, the 31,000-acre Thomas Fire scorched Ventura County, forcing tens of thousands of residents to flee from their homes. Officials for the J.
