Firefighters battle fast-moving Anaheim Hills brush fire

Destructive 'Canyon Fire 2' burning in the Anaheim hills east of Disneyland

The fire broke Monday before 11 a.m. and burned 25 acres.

The Anaheim Fire Department says the fire erupted late Monday morning and is being pushed by 25 miles per hour winds. Those who live south of Walnut Creek Reservoir should be alert, as they may need to evacuate should the fire reach their area.

The evacuation zone was primarily for residences in the wildland-urban interface south of the 91 Freeway and east of the 241. Understudies that were cleared are now at Canyon High School - two primary schools have been emptied, as indicated by the Associated Press. Santos told KPCC she lives across from Irvine Regional Park near Santiago Canyon College, an area with quite a few homes abutting wildlands.
