Firefighters with Cal Fire and Riverside County are still on the scene of a brush fire near Interstate 10 and Fields Road, near the outlet mall mopping up hot spots.
Cal Fire firefighters say the smoke from a two-and-a-half acre brush fire was so thick in some areas, they requested parts of Seminole Road to be shut down. It is now back open.
Callers to News Channel 3’s newsroom say the fire looks pretty big off the freeway.
Firefighters managed to get the upper hand from the ground, according to a Cal Fire spokesperson, so the air tanker that was on standby was canceled.
