A brush fire started by a car accident this afternoon is burning right up to homes in Calabasas, close to the area of Old Topanga Road and Mulholland Highway. It's an out of control situation. KNBC-4 and KABC-7 have dropped programming and gone on the air live.

Some neighborhoods in Calabasas have been asked to evacuate. Agoura High Schools is open for evacuees. Large animals are being accepted at Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

KABC live stream.
