2 firefighters injured battling 500-acre brush fire in Winchester
The two were taken to hospitals after sustaining minor injuries fighting the blaze, which broke out shortly before noon near Rawson and Vista roads, the Riverside County Fire Department said.
More than 200 firefighters on the ground were trying to stop the progress of the blaze, which grew from about 25 acres. In the air, four tanker planes and four helicopters were making repeated assaults on the fire.
The blaze was about 25% contained, officials said, and no structures were threatened.
