Fire Forces Lane Closures on 91 Freeway”

A wind-fanned wildfire broke out adjacent to the Riverside (91) Freeway on the Orange and Riverside counties border Monday and blackened about 1,500 acres within six hours, prompting evacuations across the Riverside County line in Corona. It was 5 percent contained. Dominguez Ranch Road was closed at Green River Road to incoming traffic. In a tweet, Anaheim Fire and Rescue stated that Dominguez Ranch was evacuated with an estimated 300 homes and totaled about 1,000 to 1,200 residents.

An evacuation shelter was set up in the gymnasium at Corona High School. By 2 p.m., 25 to 30 acres had burned in what was being called the Canyon Fire. Firefighters were burning fuel along the freeway near the roadway to keep the blaze from spreading into the area.

As of the middle of the afternoon, OCFA PIO was reporting that about a hundred firefighters were at the scene, with three helicopters and a fixed wing making drops.

Two eastbound right lanes at Coal Canyon Road were closed to make room for firefighting equipment, which led to a traffic backup for about seven miles, a CHP spokesperson said. Authorities say the blaze is also burning into Chino Hills and Anaheim.

Around 150 firefighters are battling the blaze. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
