A brush fire broke out near homes in Jurupa Valley on Thursday, prompting evacuations and leaving nearly 2,000 residents without power.
The fire started at about 4:45 p.m. at Jurupa Regional Park near the Santa Ana riverbed at Rio Road and Calle Hermosa. The fire has burned approximately 150 acres and was 30 percent contained by 12:30 a.m. Friday. Riverside County Fire says crews will remain on scene through the night.
