Canyon Fire continues to burn in Corona

Canyon Fire continues to burn in Corona”

Crews are making progress against the 2,000-acrew Canyon Fire, which is expected to be fully contained by this weekend.

An estimated 1,500 Corona residents were allowed to return to their homes Wednesday - nearly two days after the fast-moving Canyon fire tore through 2,000 acres and threatened their homes.

Captain Steve Concialdi with the Orange County Fire Authority says crews have been working through the night to protect homes, but he told KPCC media partner NBC 4 that weather conditions could make their work more hard. About 1,500 residents from 500 homes near the Riverside (91) Freeway were initially affected.

The fire began spreading at a "rapid rate" around 3 p.m. Monday, fanned by Santa Ana winds blowing at 20 to 25 miles per hour. The fire has remained at 2,000 acres for a second straight day.

Authorities said more than a thousand people have been forced to evacuate their homes to escape a fast-moving Canyon Fire south of Los Angeles. Twelve helicopters and five air tankers are also assigned to the firefight.

Three structures have been damaged by the blaze.

Four schools in the area closed Tuesday due to evacuations, poor air quality, and road closures stemming from the blaze. The schools will be open Thursday, officials said.
