A fire that broke earlier today has scorched some 200 acres in Riverside County. Dubbed the McKinley Fire, the blaze east of Corona could burn up to 500 acres as 250 firefighters on the ground work to contain it, according to KCAL9. 12 mile an hour winds, however, are concerning authorities. Although no mandatory evacuations are being called at this time many residents of the unincorporated Home Gardens are preparing just in case.
