An evacuation warning - not a mandatory order - was issued Monday evening for homes between Highland Home Road south of Beaumont and Highway 243 south of Banning, and included the San Jacinto Mountain communities of Silent Valley and Poppet Flats, fire officials said.
California fire officials issued evacuation warnings for some residents in Riverside County on Monday night after a auto crash ignited a 5,000-acre brush fire in a remote area located about 80 miles east of Los Angeles.
Voluntary evacuations have been issued for Longhorn Road, Death Valley Road and Shirleon Road. The winds, combined with high heat and low humidity, have greatly elevated fire conditions along the the hillsides leading into the San Gorgonio Pass, experts say.Читайте также: Manny Pacquiao: Conor McGregor Has No Chance Against Mayweather
Update: June 2, 9:10 a.m. - The fire remains at 5,000 acres and is 20 percent contained.The cause of the fire was a traffic collision. "As we move down it makes it easier to fight the fire but when it is critical we really just have to make sure and plan ahead and use aircraft and helicopters and get crews in and make sure we can take care of it", Cal Fire Capt. Lucas Spelman told KTLA, a CW-affiliated television station. By 4 p.m., the fire gobbled up 125 acres.
About 360 firefighters are battling the fire by air and ground. It then jumped to at least 5,000 acres at 11:45 p.m., according to the Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department. Riverside County sheriff's officials said they "accidentally" put out evacuation alerts to residents in cities where there is no fire, including Norco, Corona and Jurupa Valley.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
