  • Brush fire erupts near Santa Ana Canyon Road in Anaheim

Mandatory evacuation orders have been issued through Tuesday in Anaheim Hills after a fire has consumed more than 7,500 acres of land and at least 24 homes in Orange County, fire officials say.

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 blaze, dubbed Canyon Fire 2, started Monday in Coal Canyon and is 5 percent contained.

The fire's fast pace was the result of strong Santa Ana winds.

Homes just southwest of the interchange of the 241 and 91 freeways appeared to be most threatened, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

While personnel for the individual strike teams vary, Lim explained, there are 122 now battling Canyon Fire 2.


Twitter user S Preston said: "Anaheim fire as seen from Disneyland".

In Northern California, wildfires overnight have destroyed at least 1,500 homes and commercial buildings, and 20,000 people have been evacuated.

An estimated 5,000 homes have been evacuated with an additional 3,500 "under threat" from the fire, Wyatt told the Register. Understudies that were cleared are now at Canyon High School - two primary schools have been emptied, as indicated by the Associated Press.

Residents with horses were being asked to bring them to Los Alamitos race track.

A sanctuary has been set up at the Downtown Anaheim Community Center at 250 East Center Street.

Two High Schools are functioning as shelters for people, including El Modena High School, 3920 E. Spring St., in Orange; and Katella High School, 2200 E. Wagner Ave.in Anaheim. He also ran for governor in 2014.
