Fire officials are evaluating evacuations and looking to see if some people will be able to return to homes tonight.

The Anaheim Fire Department says the fire erupted late Monday morning and is being pushed by 25 miles per hour winds.

The northern California fires have been fanned by unexpectedly fast winds and a lack of humidity, according to California Governor Jerry Brown.

Two High Schools are functioning as shelters for people, including El Modena High School, 3920 E. Spring St., in Orange; and Katella High School, 2200 E. Wagner Ave.in Anaheim. "They need to be able to get in there, they need to be able to provide for the safety of themselves and the other people fighting the fire, and having people in the evacuation zone just makes it more hard for us to do our jobs".

"The fire was fairly inactive last night on the western edge, but was still active on the eastern edge of the fire", Wyatt said. An information hotline was set up at (714) 765-4333.

The 91 Freeway, which reopened Monday afternoon, was expected to remain open for the morning commute.

The Country Car Pet Resort at 4691 Valley View Ave.in Yorba Linda was accepting companion pets at no cost during the emergency and can accommodate 120 dogs and around 50 cats.

The fire, which started Monday morning, has covered parts of Orange County with a cloud of smoke.

Disneyland's social media channels and website indicated, however, that there were no changes to the operation of the park and all of the amusements remained open. About 1,100 firefighters were assigned to the incident, with 14 helicopters and six planes assisting from the air.

It's unknown when the districts will consider bringing back outdoor activities, though early indications are that the fire's spread could wreak further havoc before it is brought back under control.

"To California, we say though this declaration, we are with you, our prayers are with you and we will be with you every day until we put the fires out", he said.

The 241 was closed in both directions between the 91 Freeway and Chapman Avenue/Santiago Canyon Road.

Evacuations have been ordered east of Weir Canyon Road and Serrano Avenue. The eastward paths of the 91 Freeway were shut at Imperial Highway.
