On September 25th a fast moving brush fire began along the hills near the 91 Freeway close to the border between the city of Corona, and Anaheim. A concern has been raised regarding the possible direction the fire may take as winds continue pushing east toward the city of Corona.

With the initial emergence of the fire it was primarily estimated to span around 25 to 30 acres of land, and in a matter of hours the approximation was increased to over 2,000 acres. No serious injuries have yet to be reported, however one structure, and a big rig was destroyed in the midst of the blaze.

As the wildfire continues to spread, The Corona Fire Department has requested the evacuation of over 300 homes including a dozen streets in the Dominguez Ranch area with approximately 1,500 residents impacted. A shelter has been officially established at the Corona High School as firefighters rush to contain the fire.
