With winds easing overnight and humidity returning to the area, firefighters have made progress against Canyon Fire 2 in Anaheim Hills, but authorities say evacuations will remain in effect Tuesday.

A fast-moving brush fire broke out near the 91 and 241 freeways just before 10 a.m. on Monday, about a mile from where the Canyon Fire burned two weeks ago. And Gypsum Canyon on- and- off-ramps are closed from both directions of the 91 freeway. Officials haven't yet determined the cause of the fire.

The fire began Monday morning (Tuesday NZT) in the Anaheim Hills about 72 kilometres southeast of Los Angeles and was rapidly spread by the region's notorious warm, dry and gusty Santa Ana winds.

Mandatory evacuations remain in place Tuesday morning for residents in Anaheim, Orange and Tustin.
