Cranston Fire in Idyllwild area grows to 7500 acres

27 July, 2018, 12:40 | Author: Leah Owens

A fast-moving wildfire-believed to have been sparked by arson-tore through trees, burned five homes, and forced evacuation orders for an entire forest town as California sweltered under a heat wave and battled ferocious fires at both ends of the state.

Massive amounts of smoke were seen rising from the San Jacinto Mountains as an airplane dropped retardant on the fire, a video posted Wednesday night by Twitter user Captain Woody shows. Authorities arrested a 32-year-old man from Temecula, identified as Brandon N. McGlover, for allegedly setting multiple fires in the area, including the Idyllwild blaze.

By late afternoon Thursday, it covered 7,500 acres - or just over 11 square miles - and was still 5 percent contained, according to the San Bernardino National Forest.

Firefighters from the USFS San Bernardino National Forest, Riverside County Fire Department of Cal Fire, and several local public safety agencies responded to a series of wildland fires on Wednesday.

The hot and largely dry weather will further enhance the risk of new blazes into the beginning of August. CBS affiliate KFMB-TV reported that the Riverside Sheriff's station was conducting evacuations of Idyllwild, the Apple Canyon area, the Lake Hemet area, Mountain Center Community, the Hurkey Creek area and Camp Scherman Girl Scout Camp.
