A California forest fire has spread to the point that it is imperiling high school athletics at a pair of schools.

Another fire burned in the same area on September 25.

The evacuation zone was primarily for residences in the wildland-urban interface south of the 91 Freeway and east of the 241.

As wildfires raged across Northern California, authorities have said the fires have burned more than 1,500 buildings and at least 13 people have died.

The blaze, Canyon Fire 2, is now burning in parts of Anaheim, Orange and Tustin, is creating poor air quality throughout the area, and officials have warned residents to be careful while driving. An additional 500 firefighters are expected in the area by later today.

Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt says the fire remains a threat to about 3,500 Orange County homes overnight and neighbourhoods might not open until tomorrow.

Despite showing a great performance during the game, Ghana players were not able to score a single goal. According to him, "how on earth can this goal be disallowed".

By Monday night it was only 5 percent contained.

Mandatory evacuations remained in place Tuesday. For Anaheim, it is 714-765-4333. Residents should take note of the emergency hotlines.

"I don't think the fire itself would be reaching us".

Three elementary schools - Running Springs, Anaheim Hills and Canyon Rim - in the Orange Unified School District were evacuated Monday, with students bused to Canyon High School.

The musicians are being told to stay inside and employees who live in areas where evacuation orders have been given are being allowed to go home to get their things.

Some guests even claimed ash has been falling on the world-famous attraction in Anaheim - which is just up the road from the deadly canyon fires which have already destroyed 5,000 acres of land.
