The blaze, dubbed the Arlanza Fire, forced evacuations for residents living on Valley Drive between Misty Ridge Drive and Mitchell Avenue, the Riverside Fire Department tweeted shortly before 8 p.m.
The fire jumped the containment line and was burning in mulch. The blaze first erupted last Sunday and the fire department tweeted Wednesday morning that it was 90% contained, before it apparently flared up.
Valley Drive between Chadbourne Avenue and Misty Ridge Drive was also closed to vehicle traffic due to the blaze.
Just before 8 a.m. Thursday, all evacuation orders were lifted, though smoke may still be visible in the area.

Southern California will see increased fire danger for the next few days as a red flag warning is in effect for much of the region due to Santa Ana winds and dry conditions.
