The map embedded below from the Los Angeles Fire Department shows the perimeter of the Skirball Fire, which is still burning along the 405 freeway. As Santa Ana winds abate, firefighters are getting a grip on the blaze, and it is now 30 percent contained.

The fire erupted around 4 a.m. Wednesday, near where the 405 meets Sepulveda Boulevard. Gusty winds helped drive the fire up the hill, where it’s threatening homes.

Some 46,000 residents in the Bel Air area were forced to evacuate on Wednesday. Some of those evacuation orders were lifted Thursday night.

As the map shows, the fire burned 475 acres around Getty View Park, across the freeway from the Getty Center. It obliterated four homes and damaged 12 others, including an apartment building.

It outlines communities that were under mandatory evacuation orders (shaded red) and those that were told told to prepare to flee should the fire jump the freeway (shaded yellow).

The mandatory evacuation zone extended from Sunset Boulevard to the south, Roscomare Road to the west, and Mulholland to the north.
