A large brush fire erupted in Simi Valley early Wednesday and was quickly burning toward neighborhoods, triggering mandatory evacuations amid strong Santa Ana winds.

It is not clear how many acres have burned or how the fire started. All Simi Valley public schools were closed because of the fire.

Here are the evacuations, school and road closures and shelters in place for the #EasyFire in Simi Valley:

The #EasyFire burning along Tierra Rejada Road, started shortly after 6 a.m. About 100 acres have burned in less than an hour, said Ventura County Fire Capt. Brian McGrath.
