2 firefighters injured, 4 structures destroyed in Buck fire
Two firefighters received minor injuries Tuesday while battling the Buck fire in Riverside County, which has burned at least 1,800 acres and destroyed four structures, authorities reported.
The firefighters, whose names and types of injuries were not released, were taken to a hospital for treatment.
No further updates on the acreage burned were available Tuesday night. At least nine homes have been evacuated since the fire began about 1 p.m. in the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains.
Firefighters estimated earlier Tuesday that only about 5% of the fire had been contained.
