Yorba Linda Fire In Orange County Burns 18 Buildings

According to reports from San Diego Union Tribune and KNX1070 the wildfire in Yorba Linda has already burned 18 buildings in Orange Conty. Yorba Linda Fire is now becoming the focus of the California wildfires that has caused much damage and resulted in State of Emergency in California.

Reporting from Yorba Linda San Diego Union Tribune writes that "The fire moved west into the neighboring Orange County community of Yorba Linda, where six or seven buildings burned. No injuries were reported, but the “gusty and erratic” winds put many more homes in danger, Romero said.

"Arnel Tumang, 53, said by cellphone that he was using a hose to fight flames that burned brush in his Yorba Linda backyard."

The attached image about the Yorba Linda fire is credited to CBS which reports about the fire through a list of images. The story goes on saying "Twelve structures were damaged and immediate evacuations have been ordered in Corona and Yorba Linda because of a brush fire that started alongside the Riverside (91) Freeway."

The fire in Corona quickly sparked brush in Yorba Linda, burning up to 1,000 acres and damaging 12 structures. Authorities say one home in Maryweather Circle is in eminent danger.

Due to the damages and the high risk of Yorba Linda Fire, evacuation is ordered in Coronaand Yorba Linda. MyFox Los Angeles reports that "The exact number of destroyed or damaged homes was not immediately available, although broadcast reports indicated that at least a dozen homes, possibly as many as 16, were burned in Corona and Yorba Linda. There were no immediate reports of any injuries."

The most current avacuation in Yorba is Village Center/Fairmont are off Yorba Linda Blvd. All the area close to Chino Hills on the hill are either burned or very close and evacuated. 91 freeway is closed towards Riverside.

I have family there. Apparently there's mandatory evacuations for everyone north of YL boulevard. There's homes burning in Bryant Ranch homes and there's fires near Savi Ranch. I don't know much else than that, sorry. Pray for everyone there. I can't get a hold of my family.

The apartments in rear (38 and I think 39) caught fire. Structures still stand but there is heavy damage. The rest of the complex looks OK.

I live in yorba linda. i live down la palma where the whole fire burned. this was a great devistation to our city. only being 16, its horrible hearing from my friends that they lost their homes. im currently in a hotel somewhere, and its killing me to not even know wether my house is standing or not. But, the most important lesson to learn. The things in your house is just material, it can definately be replaced. STAY STRONG. PRAY<3
