Last updated 7/31/2018 at 12:41pm

As firefighters continued to battle the raging Cranston fire near Idyllwild, a second fire broke out near the Pinyon Community, July 26.

The Ribbon fire, burning at a “moderate rate of speed,” charred roughly 205 acres in the area of state Route 74 and Ribbonwood Drive.

Evacuation warnings were issued for Alpine Village, Pinyon Crest, Pinyon Pines, and the Pinyon Flatts campground, Thursday but were lifted the next day.

The blaze was fully contained Monday, July 30.

No injuries were reported in the fire and the cause is under investigation.
