Air quality in Los Angeles is projected to remain unhealthy throughout the week because of several nearby wildfires, including the Bobcat fire.
Los Angeles has an Air Quality Index rating of 130 as of Thursday, which is considered “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” according to IQAir.
Air quality in Westwood is unhealthy because of wildfires east of Los Angeles.
The Bobcat fire, which began Sunday in the Angeles National Forest, has impacted air quality throughout Southern California.
The Los Angeles controller recommended new measures to monitor and prevent wildfires with causes related to power utilities.
Ron Galperin, the LA controller or chief accounting officer, released his report assessing the fire safety efforts of the LA Department of Water and Power, the largest publicly owned utility company in the country, on Wednesday.
If a wildfire threatened UCLA, administrators plan to defend the campus rather than evacuate all students.
Michael Beck, administrative vice chancellor, said UCLA has an agreement with the Los Angeles Fire Department to provide sufficient resources to ensure campus safety, particularly for student housing facilities.
A flying branch likely sparked the Getty fire when it crashed onto nearby power lines on Sepulveda Boulevard.
The branch likely broke off during high wind conditions and landed on the power lines, causing sparks and arcing to ignite a nearby bush, according to an investigation by the Los Angeles Fire Department Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section.
