Brush Fire Grows to 100 Acres in Jurupa Valley – NBC Los Angeles

Firefighters are battling a small brush fire Friday afternoon in northwestern Riverside County.

The fire was reported at about 1 pm on Granite Hill Drive and Pyrite Street, just north of State Route 60, according to the Riverside County Fire Department. Fire officials said the blaze was between 2 and 3 acres.

The fire led to an evacuation of the Jurupa Mountains Discovery Center, a mostly outdoor facility featuring earth science activities for families.

Parts of Riverside County, including mountains, deserts and passes, are under a wind advisory until 6 pm Monday, with gusts up to 60 mph expected, which could fan any flames that ignite.

There were no reports of injuries or structures damaged by the fire.
