A fire that began around 10 a.m. has grown to 70 acres near the Riverside County town of Banning, north of the 10 Freeway, east of the 60. No communities are currently threatned, according to authorities at the San Bernardino National Forest. Apparently, the fire began near Mias Canyon Road in a shed on a farm, reported KESQ, an ABC affiliate in the Palm Springs area.
