Evacuation Orders Lifted In Riverside County As Crews Mop Up Arlanza Fire
A brush fire initially threatened some homes in Riverside County this weekend, but is now being mopped up by firefighters.
The Arlanza Fire began at approximately 1 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Tyler Avenue and Jurupa Avenue. The fire began when an off-road vehicle caught fire and ignited fuel surrounding it.
Evacuation orders had been issued for residents along Valley Drive in between Chadbourne Avenue and Mitchell Avenue, but were later lifted as firefighters from the cities of Riverside, Jurupa Valley as well as Cal Fire attacked the 16-acre brusher.
