Firefighters battle fast-moving Anaheim Hills brush fire

South Bay fire departments sent a strike team of 22 firefighters Monday to assist Orange County firefighters battling the Canyon 2 fire in Anaheim Hills.

The new blaze is being dubbed Canyon Fire 2 and started near the 91 Freeway and Gypsum Canyon Road, according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Larry Kurtz.

As of late afternoon, fire officials unofficially said six homes were damaged or lost, but it was still too early to tell the exact extent of the damage.

The fire began Monday morning (Tuesday NZT) in the Anaheim Hills about 72 kilometres southeast of Los Angeles and was rapidly spread by the region's notorious warm, dry and gusty Santa Ana winds.
