The fire, which has already destroyed 16,000 acres, remains uncontrolled and now threatens multiple parts of Los Angeles county, including Brentwood, Hollywood, Bel Air, Sunset, Mulholland, the area near LAX, more.

Over the weekend, there have been three fires raging in the Los Angeles area - in Ventura County, Bel Air, and the northeastern San Fernando Valley.

Firefighters were also on the scene of the Rye fire - which had grown to 7,000 acres in the Santa Clarita area - as well as the Creek fire north of downtown Los Angeles that had grown to more than 11,000 acres.

Even those not directly affected by the flames reported that the air quality was hazardous in the region. The fire devoured 150 acres and at least four homes near Morega Drive and Casiano Road.

Fire departments from across the state had arrived to help battle the ferocious wildfires, as heavy winds expected to continue through Thursday complicated their struggle to contain the flames. Wind speeds could increase in the coming days, reaching as much as 60 miles per hour through Thursday, officials said. Neither is Bel-Air CC, though CBS Los Angeles said the course closed Wednesday "out of an abundance of caution".
