Homes destroyed as thousands remain evacuated in Orange County

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is trying to bring the fires under control.

The cause of the fire, which sparked only about 2 miles away from where the initial Canyon Fire started on September 25, is still under investigation.

Evacuations also ordered south of the 91 freeway, west of the 241, north of Nohl Ranch Road and east of Serrano.

As of October 10, 2017, over 8,000 acres of land have burned with 5% containment.

The blaze, dubbed Canyon Fire 2, started Monday in Coal Canyon and is 5 percent contained.

Last night's update from Anaheim.net states that mandatory evacuations are still in effect in Anaheim, Orange, and Tustin in California.

Fire officials are evaluating evacuations and looking to see if some people will be able to return to homes tonight. An additional 500 firefighters are expected in the area by later today. An information hotline was set up at (714) 765-4333.

Residents with large animals were urged to take them to the Orange County Fairgrounds. Understudies that were cleared are now at Canyon High School - two primary schools have been emptied, as indicated by the Associated Press.

With winds easing off and a rise in humidity, the fire was fairly inactive on the western edge overnight, Wyatt said at an early morning press conference.

The musicians are being told to stay inside and employees who live in areas where evacuation orders have been given are being allowed to go home to get their things. More than 1,000 firefighters, six fixed-wing aircrafts and 14 helicopters were battling the blaze.

Homes just southwest of the interchange of the 241 and 91 freeways appeared to be most threatened, aerial video from Sky5 showed.
