Brush Fire Forces Evacuations Of Homes In Fullerton.

FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — A Saturday afternoon brush fire near St. FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say firefighters have controlled a brush fire in Fullerton that prompted the voluntary evacuation of homes and a recreational area near the Brea Dam. Deputy Fire Chief Julie Kunze of the Fullerton Fire Department told KNX-AM that the fire grew to about 12 acres Saturday afternoon before firefighters brought it under control. By 3 p.m., evacuations had been ordered for several nearby residential streets, including Poppy and Sunflower streets and Marion Boulevard, but not the hospital. The Sports Complex was evacuated as a result of the fire, and Fullerton firefighters were “performing structure protection” in the area, the Fire Department said.

They were assisted by 50 firefighters, 10 fire engines, one hand crew and a helicopter from the Orange County Fire Authority, the agency said on Twitter.
