A brush fire that charred more than 40 acres in Homeland near Highway 74 is fully contained, officials said. Firefighters and two air tankers were deployed to the fire in the unincorporated community just west of Hemet.

The fire was previously reported in neighboring Romoland.

The Sheriff's department had ordered evacuations of a dozen homes on Allen Avenue and Gutheridge Lane, but the threats to homes were mitigated by the Riverside County Fire Department.

There have been no reported injuries. Officials said no structures were lost in the fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, fire officials said.
