    The gusting 35 mph Santa Anna winds fanned a fire in Anaheim Hills on Sunday that became national news on both Reuters and AP news services. Local authorities suspect an abandoned car (possibly stolen) on fire near the 241 Eastern Transportation Corridor toll plaza at Windy Ridge Road, for igniting over 2000 acres by posting time. As of Sunday March 11th evening, only 30% of the fire was contained. Monday is expected to bring more windy hot conditions.

    Two storage structures were damaged in the Hidden Hills community and two homes had roof damage Hundreds of residents evacuated from hundreds of homes in the Windy Ridge Road area, OPA, Serrano Heights; Mayberry Ranch and Park Ridge. Hundreds of firefighters from the Orange County Fire Authority and the Anaheim Fire Department battled the blaze beginning at 8 a.m. Two firefighters are reported with minor injuries. No other injuries have been reported.
