12:oo NOON WEDNESDAY UPDATE:

The Canyon Fire 2 burning in the Anaheim hills is as of this morning (Wednesday) now 45 percent contained at 8,000 acres.  Most residents evacuated due to Canyon Fire 2 were cleared to return to their homes last night.
Canyon Fire 2 continues to burn but is no longer threatening Anaheim neighborhoods. A solid containment line has been created along the eastern edge of communities near the 241 Toll Road, and firefighters are hoping to use favorable weather over the next couple of days to increase containment and battle hot spots before warm Santa Ana winds return to the region this weekend.
