The brush fire started at about 9:45AM alongside the eastbound Riverside (91) Freeway near the 241 toll road in Anaheim Hills.

Anaheim Police Department and Fire & Rescue Spokesman Sgt. Daron Wyatt said at a Tuesday morning press conference that about 5,000 residences have been evacuated in the area and about 3,500 more homes are "under threat". The damage assessment is ongoing.

"I don't think the fire itself would be reaching us". On Tuesday, authorities were looking to build containment lines on the eastern edge to keep the fire from spreading into the Cleveland National Forest.

Shifting winds were top of mind for crews on Wednesday. The Gypsum Canyon Road off-ramps were also closed on the 91.

Initially reported at 25 acres, the latest blaze - dubbed Canyon Fire 2 - exploded across about 500 acres by midday, then across 4,000 to beyond 5,000 acres by late afternoon, fire officials said.

Overnight shelter can be found at Katella High School (2200 E. Wagner Ave.).

One of those evacuees was Alice Santos, who slept on one of the cots set up in the gymnasium. She said she didn't get much sleep.

The fast-moving brush fire is now threatening roughly 1,000 homes in the area.

"We always have adequate staffing", Lim said.

A Red Flag warning from the National Weather Service indicating critical fire weather conditions is in effect until Tuesday morning, and 25 miles per hour winds have pushed the growing fire west, according to City News Service.

Other than the windy conditions that helped drive them all, there was no known connection between the fires, and no cause has been released for any of them.

The smoke over the park was coming from a fire churning through canyons in hilly neighbourhoods of Orange County, where residents of about 1,000 homes were forced to evacuate and a state of emergency was declared.
