As of 9 p.m. local time, the Orange County Fire Authority reported no injuries and that multiple structures were threatened in Corona.

Temperatures near the Canyon fire in the Santa Ana Mountains will hover around 90 degrees with winds moving at about 5 miles per hour over the ridge tops with the occasional 15-mph gust, said Miguel Miller, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in San Diego.

"Canyon Fire is burning very close to freeway".

The fire prompted the Corona Norco Unified School District to cancel classes today at four schools - Coronita Elementary School, John Adams Elementary School, Cesar Chavez Academy and Prado View Elementary School - due to active evacuations, road closures and poor air quality, district officials announced on Facebook.

At least 500 homes remained under mandatory evacuation orders but authorities were hopeful some residents would be allowed to return.

The fire broke out next to the Riverside (91) Freeway, just west of Green River Road, on the border of Riverside and Orange counties and blackened about 2,000 acres within eight hours.

Green River Road was closed at Palisades Drive, Serfas Club Drive and Paseo Grande.

Battling the blaze were the Anaheim, Corona, and Los Angeles County fire departments, the OCFA, U.S. Forest Service and Cal Fire.

The fire swiftly grew to more than 3 square miles after starting just after midday Monday in canyons about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
