SAGE BRUSH FIRE BURNING NEAR TEMECULA, HEMET

SAGE BRUSH FIRE BURNING NEAR TEMECULA, HEMET

A brush fire continues to burn outside of Hemet and Temecula near Sage.

The 125 acre fire is in the area north of Sage Rd, south of Stanley, east of Benton and west of Reed Valley.

It was first reported around 1pm and is being fueled by high temperatures and dry brush.

So far three structures have been damaged.

Mandatory evacuations are in effect and the evacuation center is located at the Temecula Community Recreation Center at 30875 Rancho Vista Rd.

No major roads are closed as a result, but we continue to monitor the situation.
