Breaking News: Fire Near Ortega Highway/SJC
There is currently a fire burning near the Ortega Highway in San Juan Capistrano. As I was on my way home around 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, I noticed, what appeared to be smoke. I was sure of it when I crested a hill near my house.
It is being reported that it is a 25+ acre fire that is out of control. However, no structures are currently in danger. There are 100 OC firefighters fighting it with 100 more on the way. The cause is thought to be downed power lines, although this has yet to be thoroughly investigated.
Stay safe everyone!
