Canyon Fire 2: Here are the latest evacuation orders and closures

Wind-Driven Wildfire Spreads to Anaheim Hills Neighborhood

The wind-driven brush fire, first reported around 10 a.m., has consumed at least 2,000 acres as it spread quickly through the Anaheim Hills area. It also triggered hourslong freeway closures.

Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency due to the Canyon Fire and Anaheim Hills wildfires that are now burning thousands of acres of land and have caused millions of dollars in damages to local communities.

"People are waking up today, saying 'how am I going to start my life all over again?'" he said.

Evacuations also ordered south of the 91 freeway, west of the 241, north of Nohl Ranch Road and east of Serrano.

More than 1,000 firefighters from across the state were battling the Canyon Fire 2 in Orange County, which has now scorched 7,500 acres and is 25 percent contained. It's being fought by 200 firefighters, six helicopters and six airplanes.

As wildfires raged across Northern California, authorities have said the fires have burned more than 1,500 buildings and at least 13 people have died.


Wyatt urged all residents in evacuation zones to clear the area and not attempt to return until notified it was safe.

The sky was painted an orange hue and served as the backdrop for the park's famous attractions, including Sleeping Beauty's Castle and the Matterhorn Bobsleds ride.

One firefighter sustained a minor smoke-inhalation injury, authorities said. He is expected to be OK.

The Orange Unified School District was evacuating Running Springs Elementary School and Anaheim Hills Elementary School, with students being taken by buses to Canyon High's gymnasium.

The Canyon Fire 2 was among several wildfires that blew up Monday in California, fed by high winds, low humidity and an abundance of fuels.
