Fast-moving Anaheim Hills brush fire prompts mandatory evacuation orders

A fast-moving brush fire has destroyed or damaged multiple homes in the Anaheim Hills area, and about 1,000 other residences remain threatened as the wind-whipped wildfire continued to burn out of control amid a red flag warning.

The fire began close to the intersection of the eastward 91 Freeway and the 241 toll street. It burned about a mile of the area which was scorched by the recent Canyon Fire that blackened more than 2,600 acres and took more than a week to contain.

The resort is around 10 miles away from Anaheim Hills, where thousands of residents were ordered to evacuate as winds quickly spread the unsafe brush blaze.

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

The blaze prompted evacuations in some 1,000 homes in the area. The eastward paths of the 91 Freeway were shut at Imperial Highway. The orders were then extended to Nohl Ranch Road and Canyon Rim.
