An approximately 110 acre fire in Riverside County prompted evacuations on Saturday, Cal Fire said.

The fire, which was originally called the "Candle Fire" but then updated to the "Union Fire," is 65% contained as of Sunday morning.

Cal Fire reported that crews made "good progress" overnight and are still fighting to to contain the fire.

A mandatory evacuation was ordered Saturday for residents south of Limonite Avenue, north of Riverview Drive, east of Juan Diaz Avenue and west of Maverick Lane.

The evacuation warning has since been lifted and residents are encouraged to use caution when returning to the affected areas.

A reception and care center is opened at Patriot High School located at 4355 Camino Real in Riverside, Cal Fire said.
