Flames scorched the hillside of Coal Canyon in the Anaheim area on Sept. 25 2017
The wildfire - called Canyon Fire - started Monday around 1 p.m., near the 91 freeway and near the border between the cities of Anaheim and Corona.
A large wildfire that ripped through a canyon in Southern California on Monday has forced the evacuation of as many as 1,500 residents living around the Santa Ana Mountains near Anaheim. There were no reports of injuries in the fire, which damaged one home and destroyed the trailer of a semi-truck, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.
By 5 p.m., the fire was estimated at 250 acres with 0 percent containment, Anaheim police and fire spokesman Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.
By 11 p.m. Monday, about 40 residents had gathered at an evacuation center opened at Corona High School.
KNTV reports that the fire in the Oakland Hills neighborhood had grown quickly to about 20 acres in under an hour, or roughly a third of a square mile.
Over 150 firefighters from several departments are battling the fire, along with six helicopters and three planes.
Additionally, crews were setting backfires, hoping to keep the fire from crossing the freeway.
Evacuations were ordered on Dominguez Ranch Road, San Almada Road, San Ponte Road, San Viscaya Circle, San Sebastian Circle, San Ramon Drive, San Alvarado Road, Mt. Elena Circle, Mt. Tesoro, Mt. Palmas and Mt. Cantara Circle, according to the Corona Fire Department. Officials said evacuation orders remained in effect overnight as helicopters continued to drop water on the blaze.
Four schools have been closed due to the threat from the flames, with Corona City authorities urging people to leave their homes south of Green River Road to the Trudy Way area.
Only the far right lane was closed, but traffic had backed up to the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway, said CHP Officer Florentino Olivera.
