Canyon Fire 2 burning in Anaheim Hills

Units from the Long Beach Fire Department have been assembled and are on their way to Anaheim where a brush fire erupted this morning, forcing mandatory evacuations. Eyewitness News observed at least nine homes that were destroyed by flames. Officials said between 3,000 and 4,000 residents have been affected.

According to KTLA, the fire started around 10 a.m. Monday scorching about 25 acres near Highways 91 and 241.

Some posted pictures of clear blue skies side-by-side with the orange smoke, which they said were taken a few seconds apart. Horse evacuations were established on the west end of Yorba Regional Park. Wyatt said officials would consider opening more centers if the need arose.

She said all appointments and surgeries are cancelled for the day in Santa Rosa and Napa, and the KP medical offices in Napa are closed. About 5,000 homes are threatened in Anaheim, Tustin and Orange.

The fire, dubbed the Canyon Fire 2, destroyed multiple homes and forced hundreds of evacuations as of Monday afternoon.

The fire expanded from around 10 hectares acres to some 2000 hectares within hours.

Residents describe terrifying middle-of-the-night scrambles to flee from raging wildfires.

By Monday afternoon, almost 90,000 acres burned and the flames threatened the large city of Anaheim. When she couldn't reach 911, she quickly loaded up the vehicle and fled. There were 200 staff battling the fire as indicated by an early evening refresh from Anaheim Fire and Rescue. There was also no word on whether those campuses would reopen Tuesday, with the decision dependent on the fire fight.

"I don't think the fire itself would be reaching us".

Williams says she could feel the heat as trees turned into torches. Very low relative humidity, coupled with the strong and gusty winds will pose a critical fire weather threat.

About 1,000 firefighters battled the flames amid dry, gusty conditions that prompted fire warnings across the region. The north and central portions of Orange County are under the smoke advisory, along with Saddleback Valley, Capistrano Valley, Corona and Norco and north and southwest Los Angeles County.
