A sigh of relief for Riverside County as one of two wildfires goes under full containment. Officials announced this morning that the 860-acre Pendleton Fire is no longer a threat. "All recommended and mandatory evacuation orders have been lifted for all areas of the Oak Glen and Pendleton fire areas," read an status update on CalFire's website. The blaze in Yucaipa began Monday around 3:30 p.m. and had prompted a myriad of evacuations.

The nearby Oak Glen III Fire, which began early Sunday afternoon, has gone through 1,159 acres and nears full containment at 90 percent. 100 percent is expected by next Monday. The causes of both fires are under investigation.
