Brush fire erupts near Santa Ana Canyon Road in Anaheim

Wyatt added, though, that conditions will be similar to Monday, when the fire started in Coal Canyon and spread quickly with the help of hot, dry conditions and the Santa Ana Winds, Wyatt said at a Tuesday morning press conference.

The fire, which broke out around 9:45 a.m., was burning about a mile from the recent Canyon Fire that eventually blackened more than 2,600 acres and took more than a week to contain.

The evacuation zone was primarily for residences in the wildland-urban interface south of the 91 Freeway and east of the 241. The cause of this latest fire was unknown.
