The Southern California fires have affected some of the area’s busiest traffic arteries. Parts of the 405 freeway, which carries up to 400,000 vehicles a day, were temporarily closed on Wednesday. The 101 freeway, closed early Thursday, was reopened hours later. But roadways remain closed throughout the region.

The Los Angeles Police Department has advised drivers to be wary of following navigation apps that direct them through areas that are on fire.

The California Department of Transportation has an app called QuickMap that is being updated live with more information.
