Canyon Lake Fire Department responds to vegetation fire on BLM land

The Canyon Lake Fire Department and Cal Fire responded to a vegetation fire on Bureau of Land Management land, north of the Canyon Lake Fire Station.

The Idaho Fire erupted on Tuesday evening around 7:30 p.m. and was contained by 9:40 p.m. There was no threat to homes, according to the City of Canyon Lake.

“The vegetation fire is now contained thanks to the amazing work of our Canyon Lake Fire Department, CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department, and Bureau of Land Management teams,” the city said. “This is an important reminder that there is a lot of vegetation out there following all the rain this year, and we must remain diligent in preventing fires in our community.”

The Idaho Fire was one of several fires that erupted in Riverside County on Tuesday. One firefighter responding to the Lake Elsinore Snake Fire was transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury, several outbuildings and vehicles were destroyed in the Perris Rider Fire, and the Moreno Valley Springs Fire caused a portion of Highway 60 to be closed.
