The famed Getty Center in Los Angeles was forced to keep its doors closed on Wednesday as a massive wildfire raged nearby.

“The Getty Center is closed to the public today. The fire is northeast of the Getty Center and east of the San Diego Freeway. Air filtration systems are protecting the galleries from smoke. We continue to monitor the situation and will issue updates as we have them,” the art museum tweeted Wednesday morning.

The Getty Center, which houses works by Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, was also closed on Tuesday to “protect the collections from smoke from fires in the region.”
