Volcano Fire Spreads to More than 200 Acres

A brush fire burning in Riverside County has ballooned to more than 200 acres, repairs the Los Angels Times.

The so-called Volcano fire initially burned slowly before flaring up about 12:20 p.m., and reached more than 100 acres just a few minutes later.

As of 1:20 p.m., the fire had burned more than 200 acres and was less than 5 percent contained, officials said. No evacuations had been ordered although television footage showed the flames moving closer to area homes.

Nearly 200 firefighters were on the scene with at least four helicopters. There have been no immediate reports of injuries.
