A fast-moving wildfire on Monday destroyed at least five multimillion-dollar homes in one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in Los Angeles and forced celebrities to flee in the middle of the night.

Among neighbourhoods under evacuation orders was the posh area of Brentwood, a section on the west side of the city that became world famous in 1994 when former football star O.J. Simpson was accused of killing his ex-wife and a waiter there.

A red-carpet premiere for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new movie, Terminator: Dark Fate, that had been scheduled for Monday night was cancelled due to fires in the area.

The former California Governor Schwarzenegger said he was among the thousands who had to evacuate overnight.

“If you are in an evacuation zone, don’t screw around. Get out,” Schwarzenegger wrote on Twitter.

The Terminator premiere had been scheduled to take place in Hollywood, several miles from the fire zone. Food intended for the premiere party was being donated to local American Red Cross shelters that were housing fire evacuees, Paramount Pictures said.

Monday’s fire erupted in the hills above where Simpson had lived and was near the Getty Centre, a museum for the art collection of late oil magnate J Paul Getty that includes works by Rembrandt and Van Gogh, according to the museum’s website.
