  • Wind-Driven Wildfire Spreads to Anaheim Hills Neighborhood

Homes and families in the Orange County, Anaheim, Anaheim Hills, Los Angeles, & Surrounding Areas have been evacuated, homes have been destroyed, missing persons reports have been filed with the authorities, and at least 8,000 acres of land has been destroyed.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the fire started on Monday morning near the 91 Freeway and Gypsum Canyon Road, where it grew and traveled through the California 241 toll road. By late afternoon, ash from the fire was falling as far away as Long Beach and San Pedro.

The fire comes just weeks after a brush fire burned over 2,500 acres at the Anaheim-Corona border, prompting dozens of evacuations. Mandatory evacuations have been ordered for those in the Anaheim Hills area, as well as for the east end of Orange.

Overnight shelter can be found at Katella High School (2200 E. Wagner Ave.).
