Fast-moving Anaheim Hills brush fire prompts mandatory evacuation orders

The vegetation fire, which has been dubbed the Canyon Fire 2, prompted the evacuations of more than 5,000 homes in Anaheim Hills, Orange, Orange Park Acres and Tustin on Monday.

The fire, which broke out around 9:45 a.m., was burning about a mile from the recent Canyon Fire that eventually blackened more than 2,600 acres and took more than a week to contain.

But while last month's Canyon Fire burned east, winds whipping at about 25 miles per hour pushed its sequel to the west on Monday, prompting mandatory evacuation orders for residents south of the Riverside Freeway and west of the 241 toll road.

The fire continued to burn on the east side of the 241 and south of 91 Freeway Tuesday morning. By late afternoon, ash from the fire was falling as far away as Long Beach and San Pedro. However, the boundary line was pronounced, and the area of the Canyon Fire 2 was still experiencing single-digit relative humidity levels, courtesy of the Santa Ana Winds.

But mandatory evacuations remain in place.

Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt says the fire remains a threat to about 3,500 Orange County homes overnight and neighbourhoods might not open until tomorrow. Santos told KPCC she lives across from Irvine Regional Park near Santiago Canyon College, an area with quite a few homes abutting wildlands.

Officials have set up two reception centers for evacuees, one at Katella High School in Anaheim and the other at El Modena High School in Orange. Officials said the fire was moving rapidly toward the 241 Freeway.

The fast-moving brush fire is now threatening roughly 1,000 homes in the area. The eastward paths of the 91 Freeway were shut at Imperial Highway.

Anaheim: east of Serrano, north of Nohl Ranch, south of 91 freeway, west of 241 freeway.
