Smoke looms over CSUF as Canyon Fire 2 burns through Anaheim Hills

The fire broke Monday before 11 a.m. and burned 25 acres. The damage assessment is ongoing.

Over 5,000 homes across three cities were evacuated due to the rapid growth of the blaze.

The Canyon Fire 2 started Monday morning in the Anaheim Hills area.

Two High Schools are functioning as shelters for people, including El Modena High School, 3920 E. Spring St., in Orange; and Katella High School, 2200 E. Wagner Ave.in Anaheim.

One of those evacuees was Alice Santos, who slept on one of the cots set up in the gymnasium.

CHP officials were working at day's end to open all but the right lane on the eastbound Riverside Freeway, Olivera said. She said she didn't get much sleep.

With between 3,000 and 4,000 residents potentially impacted, mandatory evacuations have been ordered in several areas around the fire (detailed in the map below).

"We always have adequate staffing", Lim said.
