The Bluff Fire that began around 9:30 a.m. this morning north of Banning has spread rapidly, prompting an aggressive assault from the ground and air from CalFire and Riverside County fire officials. Two County firefighters suffered heat-related injuries, according to the Daily Bulletin. The blaze, which is suspected of starting in a shed, has been 10 percent contained. No home have been damaged or are threatened at the present time. "It's pretty much (burning in) open rural area in the hills of Mias Canyon," said CalFire Capt. Fernando Herrera to The Desert Sun. He said fire lines have been built completely around the fire and the weather is cooperating.
