The right lane of the eastbound 91 freeway is closed from east of Weir Canyon Road to west of the Riverside County line, he said.

Fire remains at 7,500 acres with a jump in containment to 25%, up from 5%.

An hour later, the Orange County Fire Authority estimated the fire had burned 2,000 acres and was 0 percent contained. The smoke was so thick and high that it could be seen over Disneyland.

The death occurred in the Mendocino County area, according to Cal-Fire, which declined to immediately release further details. Evacuation orders are also in effect in an area north of the town of Oroville, where the Cherokee Fire has burned 1,00 acres.

Last night's update from Anaheim.net states that mandatory evacuations are still in effect in Anaheim, Orange, and Tustin in California.

The structures included about a dozen destroyed homes and seven others that suffered fire damage, according to the post.

Areas that are evacuated can be found in a searchable map released by Anaheim Fire and Rescue.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory in the area because of the fire through Tuesday morning. An information hotline was set up at (714) 765-4333. Residents should take note of the emergency hotlines. Officials say the fire that started Monday is consuming the un-burnt brush left by the first wildfire.

Chapman students who live off campus and had to be evacuated are being directed to go to Randall Dining Commons or the Student Union in Argyros Forum for shelter, Ledbetter said. More than 1,000 firefighters, six fixed-wing aircrafts and 14 helicopters were battling the blaze.
