A brush fire erupted in Riverside County Saturday afternoon and grew to 3,300 acres by Sunday morning. The neighborhoods on Live Oak Canyon Road between San Timoteo Road and the 10 Freeway were under mandatory evacuation orders, officials said.

Voluntary evacuations were in place for Outer Highway 10 from Live Oak Canyon Road to Alta Vista and on Alta Vista to Sunset Drive and Sunset Drive to Helen Court. About 100 homes were affected on the side of Riverside County and nine others were affected in Redlands.

The Palmer fire broke out around 1:30 p.m. Saturday west of Beaumont, near San Timoteo Canyon Road and Fisherman's Retreat, and rapidly spread by nightfall. Officials estimate 450 people were displaced.

Officials have closed Redlands Boulevard south of San Timoteo Canyon Road.
