Firefighters are battling a raging 150-acre brush fire that shut down the 405 Freeway near the world-famous Getty Center, prompting mandatory evacuations for residents and shutting down one of the busiest freeways in Los Angeles.

By 1 p.m., all lanes were reopened, but the damage to the already taxing LA commute had been done. 

The blaze, dubbed the Skirball Fire, was reported at 4:52 a.m. Wednesday. It was accompanied by Santa Ana winds of 25 mph, which have helped spur several devastating wildfires across Southern California this week.
