A menacing fire has destroyed at least one structure in Corona late into the night on Monday as firefighters remained trying to conserve hundreds of intimidated homes in an abandoned neighborhood. The Canyon Fire, which commenced on Monday afternoon along the 91 Freeway near the Orange-Riverside county line, had developed to 2,000 acres and only 5 percent was contained.
Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, the fire’s public information officer reported that one edifice was burned but they did not have a location. Officials conveyed that a big rig was burned. Television news broadcasted that a structure seemed to be on fire on Wilderness Circle and Misty Lane. A Southern California News Group photographer observed firefighters quickly and efficiently douse a fire that started on the roof of a house on San Ramon Drive.
Around 300 firefighters were employed in extinguishing the fire. Wyatt also said that the firefighting procedure or plan overnight would pivot on the weather. The strategies change many times incommensurate with wind direction. Initially it was blowing east towards Corona, and then it changed the direction and blew west toward Anaheim.
Los Angeles County dispatched a night-flying Firehawk helicopter to perpetuate dribbling water on fire overnight. On Monday evening the wildfire had started progressing downhill toward a Corona neighborhood and few residents began swathing and escaping intentionally as an eviction order was issued for about 300 homes.
An eviction center was established in the gymnasium of Corona High School at 1150 W. 10th St. Experts said that the animal regulation officials were rescuing people with pets.
