    OC Supervisor Moorlach declares local emergency in Freeway Complex Fire: Orange County officials ask for state and federal help

    Two minor injuries have been reported, dozens of homes and hundreds of apartments destroyed

    Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairman John Moorlach has proclaimed a local emergency due to the rampaging Freeway Complex Fire. The declaration frees up county resources to respond to the raging wildfire that has already scorched more than 1,200 acres.

    Orange County officials have asked for a state and federal emergency proclamations to provide more response resources and aid to those who lose their homes in the disaster. The wind driven fire has destroyed homes in Yorba Linda, Brea and Anaheim Hills and continues to threaten more than a thousand structures.

    A mandatory evacuation has been ordered for the Olinda Ranch area, at Valencia Avenue and Lambert Road.

    A voluntary evacuation has been advised for the vicinity east of State College Road and North of Lambert Road.

    The shelter at Esperanza High School has been closed due to air quality concerns. Shelters are now open at the Downtown Community Center, 250 East Center St., Anaheim and the Brea Community Center, 695 Madison Ave., Brea.

    The 91 Freeway is closed between Green River Road and the 71 and also at Lambert. The 91 off ramps are closed at westbound Green River Road and Gypsum Canyon Road.
