Rosa fire half contained
Riverside County Fire spokesperson Massiel Ladron De Guevara said that by 12:25 p.m. the so-called Rosa Fire had burned 411 acres -- mostly of heavy vegetation -- west of Interstate 15.
About 200 firefighters are battling the blaze and had it 50% contained, with full containment expected sometime Wednesday. She said a voluntary evacuation was in effect in De Luz, an unincorportated area of the county.
