Crews had the fire 60 percent contained as of Wednesday evening and expect to have full containment by Saturday, fire officials stated in an incident update.

The final remaining evacuation order for homes off Windes Drive in the city of Orange was lifted about 5 p.m.

Several schools, including Anaheim Hills, Canyon Rim, Chapman Hills, Linda Vista, Panorama and Running Springs elementary schools remained closed Wednesday “out of an abundance of caution,” the City of Anaheim posted.

Officials are still working to determine the extent of the damage caused by the fire.

So far, 23 structures have been destroyed and another 36 were damaged, according to the incident update.

Video on Tuesday showed six homes had  burned in one Anaheim Hills neighborhood and several more in a neighborhood in Orange.

More favorable weather conditions have recently helped firefighters slow the blaze, which began about 9:45 a.m. Monday along State Route 91 in the area of Coal Canyon.
