Smoke, Ash Result of Second Fire in Badlands in Two Weeks (updated with photos)

Posted October 6, 2005, 9:02 AM.

Smoke and ash Thursday morning in western Riverside County is the the result of a wildfire in the San Timoteo Canyon that began Wednesday. The Woodhouse Fire, as it has been named is the second in two weeks in the area, which is in northern Riverside County near Beaumont, south of Calimesa, and east of Moreno Valley.

Over 6,000 acres had been burned by Thursday morning, and 700 firefighters were fighting the blaze. No structures have been damaged, but there many threatened and voluntary evacuations were taking place in the area. The fire was 25% contained as of 6pm Wednesday.

State Route 60 through the area, east of Moreno Valley, was closed yesterday in both directions while firefighters battled the blaze.

The San Timoteo wildfire burned over 1,100 acres in the area during last week's Santa Ana winds.
