By 4 a.m. Tuesday, Virginia Padilla's ranch was in the direct path of the fast-moving Creek Fire in Southern California.

The devastating blaze destroyed at least 30 homes and prompted mandatory evacuations that affected an estimated 150,000 residents, according to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Firefighters are making some gains as they continue to douse the Creek Fire, which scorched thousands of acres in the Sunland-Tujunga and Sylmar areas. The other 10 homes were within Los Angeles city limits, according to Stewart.

Patricia Padilla, the owner of the ranch, said she agonized over leaving the horses, but the firemen who knocked at her door and told her to evacuate had made it clear that it was a matter of life and death that she and her family leave immediately.

With two large brush fires burning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, air quality was visibly bad Tuesday, even with strong winds blowing much of the smoke out onto the ocean. Tuesday's warnings are scheduled to expire at 6 p.m., but forecasters say Santa Ana winds could persist into Friday or Saturday.

The 210 interchange with the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway was also closed. Evacuations were initially ordered in the area north of the Foothill Freeway from Glenoaks Boulevard on the west to the border with La Crescenta on the east. Once those shelters reached capacity, pet owners were directed to take their large animals to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds.

Classes are canceled today at Los Angeles Mission College due to the mandatory evacuations, officials said. For small animals, shelters were in place at West Valley Animal Shelter, 20655 Plummer St., and the East Valley Animal Shelter, 14409 Vanowen St. And the Los Angeles Unified School District said the student bodies of Hubbard and Harding schools in Sylmar would be redirected to San Fernando High School at 11133 O'Melveny Ave.in San Fernando.
