More Brush Fires: Evacuations and Freeway Closures in Corona, Yorba Linda
Firefighters in Orange County are currently fighting two reported brush fires. A fire "in Corona near Green River Road and the westbound Riverside (91) Freeway" was reported in the 9 o'clock hour this morning, and now reports of a fire in Yorba Linda in an as-of-yet unspecified area are both threatening homes as well as necessitating freeway closures and evacuations. CBS2.com reports that "the 91 Freeway was closed between Green River Road and the Corona (71) Expressway at 9:45 a.m. Traffic is also being stopped on the Riverside (91) Freeway between Orange and Riverside counties." Immediate evacuations of the area have been ordered. The Yorba Linda fire is prompting evacuations of the area to the East of Gypsum Canyon, which, according to a live report on KABC-7 is the area on Page 741 of the current Thomas Guide map book.
