According to the Los Angeles Fire Department's Twitter page, there's a two-acre fire at 1200 Getty Drive, near the Getty Center. At 1:17 pm, the LAFD told the Los Angeles Times that no structures were threatened. This shot was taken by a reader in Century City.

UPDATE: Getty has been evacuated, according to the Times. "Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said the fire has burned 10 acres and is moving north. The fire was jamming traffic on the nearby 405 Freeway. Scott said no structures are immediately threatened at this time."

UPDATE: CNN via KTLA has better streaming video. 405 not closed, so CBS update removed.

UPDATE: Via LAFD's Twitter: 1200 Getty Center Dr* aprox 8 acres, 250 firefighters, no containment percentage yet, no cause, no injuries, no structures damaged. - Erik Scott###

UPDATE: Citing L.A. City Fire Chief Douglas Barry, the Daily News is reporting that 50 acres have burned, but it sounds like the LAFD feels the fire is manageable. "We feel pretty confident," the chief said. "The winds are favorable."

UPDATE: Fire now up to 80 acres per LAFD Twitter and LA Times.
