RIVERSIDE (CBSLA) – Evacuation orders were lifted Thursday morning for a wildfire which broke out last weekend in the Arlanza neighborhood of Riverside, and had been nearly fully contained, then flared up Wednesday amid powerful Santa Ana wind gusts.

The Arlanza Fire erupted before noon Sunday near Jurupa Avenue and Tyler Street.

Riverside Fire Department crews had been fighting the fire for several days. By Wednesday morning, it was 90% contained.

However, amid gusty wind conditions, the blaze jumped containment lines Wednesday evening, prompting evacuations between Misty Ridge Drive and Mitchell Avenue, the fire department said. It also forced several road closures in the area.

The fire sent up massive plumes of smoke. Firefighters were concerned about the winds carrying embers into neighborhoods.

Crews made good progress on the flare up. Just before 8 a.m., the fire department reported that all evacuations had been lifted.

Streets remained closed in the area between Mitchell Avenue, Valley Drive and Chadboune Avenue. Residents were also advised to spend too much time outside because of the smoke in the area.

Family Remembers Woman Killed In Collision Involving Sacramento Metro Fire Ambulance

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Candles and flowers surrounded a single photo of Danielle Hanna along Fulton Avenue. It’s that smile and personality cousin Taylor Gordon said she will miss the most.

“She was literally like the funniest person, if you just met her within two seconds, she was cracking a joke,” said Gordon.

Gordon described Hanna as more like a big sister, talking daily and always there to support her.

“I just keep thinking about how I won’t see her again,” explained Taylor Gordon.

The 30-year-old mom was with a group of friends when she was hit by two separate drivers just minutes apart while walking along Fulton Avenue Friday. The second driver, a medic Sac Metro Fire, was driving an ambulance and transporting a patient.

It is unclear which injuries caused Hanna’s death, but her family said they are not blaming anyone.

“I understand that accidents happen. It just happened to be at the wrong place, wrong time type of thing,” said Gordon. “Although it is really tragic how it happened, I just want people to remember her for the smiles that she would bring.”

Hanna’s family lives just five minutes from where the accident happened.

“I just never in a million years thought we would be dealing with this,” explained Aunt, Brandy Dexter.

Dexter was with her niece just hours before the accident cutting down Christmas trees, part of their yearly family tradition.

“You just never know when your last moments are going to be with someone. You always want to hug them,” she said.

As the family waits for more details from the investigation, they are focusing on how Hanna lived her life and the last moments they spent with her.

“I remember that I got to give her a hug and tell her I love her. We just always planned on seeing each other again,” said Gordon.
