Authorities say a wildfire in Southern California has been 20 percent contained but more than 200 homes near the Cleveland National Forest remain evacuated.

Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said Sunday that more than 1,000 firefighters and fire personnel are battling the 2 1/2 square mile blaze.

Concialdi says six firefighters have suffered minor injuries since the fire began Friday in Orange County's Silverado Canyon, many of them heat-related as temperatures reach triple digits.

Concialdi says more than 200 homes remain under an evacuation order issued late Friday.
