Transportation to and from schools closed by the Getty Fire was canceled Monday.

As of 7 a.m., about 900 customers were without power due to the blaze, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The affected area included Bel Air, Brentwood and Westwood. It is unclear when power will be restored. Southern California Edison turned off power for nearly 16,000 customers as a preemptive measure, with over 350,000 under considerations for shutoffs.

Southern California is bracing for the return of Santa Ana winds as it remains under red flag conditions Monday. Several blazes ravaged the area last week as the combination of Santa Ana winds, low humidity and hot temperatures created dangerous fire conditions.

It was not immediately known what caused the fire.

Here's how you can help support firefighters who respond to devastating brush fires to protect lives and homes.
