Pepperdine Monitoring the Knolls Wildfire

Posted on

Pepperdine is monitoring the Knolls wildfire which is burning near Hughes Research Laboratory, 3477 Malibu Canyon Road, less than a mile from Pepperdine’s Malibu Campus. While the incident is visible from campus and the Los Angeles County Fire Department is using Alumni Park to support air operations, the fire is burning towards Civic Center Way and does not appear to be threatening campus at this time. Due to the fire, officials have closed Malibu Canyon Road to southbound traffic between Malibu Knolls Road to Pacific Coast Highway. Traffic may also be restricted on Pacific Coast Highway.

Please be advised of the following:

  • Community members whose homes are affected by the fire or road closures should follow the directions of their local governmental agencies. 
  • Road condition information is available on the University’s Road Condition hotline at 310.506.ROAD (7623).
