Evacuation hotline

Fire officials battling the Santiago fire urged residents to call a hotline before deciding to evacuate or return to their homes. The number is (714) 573-6200. The fire continues to threaten Silverado Canyon, and is moving quickly toward Riverside County.

"The ocean winds blow from the west and hit mountains and stop," said Rick Vogt, a spokesman for Cal Fire. "The concern is that if the fire crosses the hill at the county line, homes in Riverside County could be in jeopardy. Should people leave now? No. If that becomes an issue, residents will be warned."
