LOS ANGELES - At least three people — two firefighters and one civilian — have been injured in the Silver fire, a fast-moving blaze that had consumed 6,000 acres in Riverside County by Wednesday night and was continuing to spread.
The fire spread so quickly that some residents were told to "shelter in place" earlier in the day until they could safely evacuate, said Capt. Lucas Spelman of CalFire.
"Definitely a fast-moving fire," Spelman said. "There was a situation where people did have to shelter in place."
The fire began about 2 p.m. around Poppet Flats Road near Highway 243, south of Banning. Mandatory evacuations were ordered for the communities of Poppet Flats, Twin Pines and Silent Valley.
