Frantic evacuation at senior care center near Riverside Heights Health Care center in Jurupa Valley.


GETTING CLOSE TO THEM. WHAT IS THE LATEST?>>THIS IS A SENIOR CARE CENTER, CALL THE RIVERSIDE HEIGHT — RIVERSIDE HEIGHTS HEALTH CENTER. YOU SEE POLICE IN THE PARKING LOT. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET FOLKS MOVED TO A SAFE LOCATION. JUST ABOVE THE HILLSIDE, YOU CAN SEE THE FLAMES. THE WIND IS DRIVING THE FIRE. WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING SOME REALLY STRONG GUSTS BLOWING EMBERS, ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE 60. THE CHP IS DOING BREAKS ALONG THE 60 TO SLOW TRAFFIC. THE SMOKE HAS WAFTED ACROSS. YOU CAN SEE HOW DARK THE SMOKE IS. JUST ABOVE THIS SENIOR HEALTH CARE CENTER, THEY WERE EVACUATING. WE SAW THEM EVACUATE THE MOBILE HOME PARK ON THE CORNER. THE FIRE APPEARS TO BE FAST-MOVING.YOU CAN SEE HOW WINT HERE. THESE ARE DANGEROUS CONDITIONS. FIREFIGHTERS WERE HOPING — YOU CAN SEE THE LOW HUMIDITY. BRUSHES CATCHING FIRE SO FAST. EARLIER, WHEN YOU ARE WITH US, YOU SAW THE FIRE BURNED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE ROAD, AND AS THE WIND CONTINUED, IT JUMPED OVER AND ONTO THE FREEWAY. EASTBOUND 60 IS NAUTA. IT APPEARS WESTBOUND LANES ARE — EASTBOUND 60 IS NAUTA. — IS NOW AT A FULL STOP. IT APPEARS THE WESTBOUND LANES ARE SLOW DOWN AS WELL. ON THE OTHER OF THE FREEWAY, YOU CAN SEE THE CONCERN THAT THE FIRE MAY JUMP INTO THAT. RIGHT NOW, THERE IS AN ACTIVE EVACUATION HAPPENING. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME VIDEO FROM EARLIER THIS IS THE HILL FIRE BURNING INTO THE HARUKA — JURUPA HILLSIDE, REALLY PICKING UP STEAM AS THE WIND CARRIES EMBERS ACROSS THE FREEWAY. THE FIRE IS BEING BLOWN IN ALL DIRECTIONS BECAUSE THE WIND HAS BEEN SO ERRATIC. WE ARE SEEING GUS’S WITH FIRE IN THEM AT TIMES. YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE WIND IS DOING TO THE FIRE AS IADS IT IN ALL DIRECTIONS. THEY ARE ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT THE FIRE REACTS ONCE IT STARTS GETTING INTO THOSE TREES. ANY TREE CAN REALLY BE FUEL. I DO WANT TO REITERATE, WE ARE HERE IN HARUKA VALLEY — JURUPA VALLEY. THIS IS THE HILL FIRE AND SHERIFFS DEPUTIES ARE WORKING TO GET PEOPLE OUT SAFELY. BRANDI: WE WANT TO STAY WITH YOU. WE SEE A LARGE PLUME OF BLACK THIS IS A SENIOR HEALTH CARE CENTER. ANY IDEA HOW THEY PLAN TO EVACUATE ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE?>>IT APPEARS THEY ARE WAITING. PULLING UP. BUT WITH THE FREEWAYS BACKED UP IN BOTH DIRECTIONS, IT’S HARD TO GET PEOPLE IN HERE. RIGHT NOW, IT APPEARS THEY ARE WAITING. THEY HAVE THEIR MASKS ON. SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES ARE ON HAND. THEY ARE WAITING FOR HELP TO ARRIVE SO THEY CAN SAFELY EVACUATE. THERE IS A LOT OF SMOKE AND THIS CANNOT BE HEALTHY FOR ANYONE WITH HEALTH ISSUES, AND THIS IS A HEALTH CENTER, SO WE ASSUME PEOPLE HAVE HEALTH ISSUES. AS YOU CAN SEE AS WE ARE TALKING, THE SMOKE HAS STARTED TO COME DOWN AND YOU CAN SEE THE BLACK ASH FALLING. THEY WANT TO GET SENIORS OUT OF HERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THEY JUST NEED THE VEHICLES TO GET THEM OUT. DAVID: THAT PARKING LOT IS SO VULNERABLE RIGHT NOW AS THE FIRE IS APPROACHING. LUCKILY, FIREFIGHTERS ARE THERE. THEY ARE NEARBY. BUT IT BEARS REPEATING THAT THE 60 FREEWAY IS SHUT DOWN, AND THAT’S INHIBITING TRAFFIC FROM MOVING, AND THEY ARE HAVING A HARD TIME FIGURING OUT HOW TO GET EVERYBODY OUT AND PERHAPS GET THE PROPER VEHICLES THERE TO GET EVERYBODY OUT. BY THE WAY, LETICIA, YOU ARE YOUR — YOU WERE AT ANOTHER AREA DOWN THE ROAD WHERE WE SHOWED HAND CREWS PUTTING OUT THE FIRES. IS THAT SITUATION ANY BETTER?>>IN TERMS OF IT BURNING ITSELF OUT, YES, IT APPEARS BETTER, BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF RESOURCES DOWN IN THAT AREA. LIKE I SAID, THE FREEWAY IS AT A. — AT A FULL STOP. I BELIEVE THE FIREFIGHT IS STILL INTENSE OVER THERE. THEY HAVE MOVED A LOT OF RESOURCES. THE SMOKE IS GETTING REALLY HEAVY. THEY ARE NOW STAGING BRUSH PROTECTION. THE FIRE IS COMING CLOSER TO US. IT’S COMING CLOSER AS THEY MOVE RESOURCES CLOSER TO THE AREA.GR. I DID FORGET TO MENTION THAT WITH THE EVACUATION PROCESS, A CARE CHAS BEEN SET UP. THE EVACUANTER IS GOING TO BE AT PATRIOT HIGH SCHOOL. WE SEE ANOTHER LADDER TRUCK COMING INTO THE AREA. THEY ARE MOVING RESOURCES. THE SMOKE HAS GOTTEN A LOT THICKER. THE FIRE HAS BURNED TO THE HILLSIDE. RIGHT NOW, WE ARE JUST WAITING TO SEE WHEN EVACUATIONS WILL TAKE PLACE. OVER IN THE HILLSIDE SEND OFF TO THE SIDE, YOU SEE A
