A third fire broke out in Riverside County shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday, fire officials said. The blaze in the Wildemar area joins the Rosa fire in Temecula, which investigators determined was intentially set, and the Rocha fire.

Riverside County Fire Capt. Justin Scribner said investigators the department has set a hotline (1 800 633-2836) for information about possible arson in the Rosa fire. The blaze, which broke out at 11 p.m. Monday, has charred 411 acres. No property damage or injuries were reported.

The Rocha Fire in Aguanga, in southeastern Riverside County, broke out Sunday and destroyed one mobile home, before firefighers brought it under control Monday.
