Menifee: Fire Breaks Out on Bell Mountain

A vegetation fire broke out late this afternoon on Bell Mountain, just outside of the Hidden Meadows community, near Menifee Rd and Holland Rd.  Several fire trucks responded.  One house on Rocky River Rd appeared to be threatened, but fire crews managed to keep the fire from gaining too close.

As of this writing, fire crews are still fighting the blaze.

Thus far, CalFire reports about 5-6 acres have been scorched.

About 90 minutes earlier, a 4-5 acre fire broke out in Wildomar on the corner of Clinton Keith and Palomar Rd.
