Virginia Padilla, whose family owns a ranch in Sylmar, had the devastating loss of at least 30 horses to the 11,000-acre blaze dubbed the Creek Fire.

The charred remains of 29 horses were left behind by the Creek Fire, one of five that has led to the evacuation of almost 200,000 people in Southern California. She and her family were given just enough time to gather some necessities but not their horses, Padilla said.

The number of areas evacuated because of the Creek Fire has expanded throughout the morning, and a new map (below) shared by the Los Angeles Fire Department shows just how many neighborhoods are affected.

Los Angeles Fire Fighters are fighting a fire that erupted Tuesday morning due to Santa Ana winds and has already burned 2,500 acres in Sylmar County.

Evacuations were also issued for Arroyo Street north of the 210 Freeway and areas of Maclay, Pocoima Wash west of Sayre Street and Eldridge, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart stated in an update.

Seventeen evacuation centers were opened throughout the San Fernando Valley, and all were accepting evacuees and pets.

Horses and other large animals can be brought to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds at 2551 W. Avenue H, in Lancaster.

Terrazas reminded residents in various hillside areas that red-flag parking restrictions remain in effect.
