The evacuation orders were issued Wednesday afternoon for neighborhoods that were affected by the Canyon Fire, which charred about 2,600 acres between Anaheim Hills and Corona.
The brush fire started in September and threatened mostly homes in the Corona area before fire officials finally gained control of it.
Many burn areas across Southern California were under threat of possible mudslides or debris flows and flooding as a strong storm moved into the region. The heaviest rainfall was expected Thursday morning into early afternoon and then it would clear in some areas.
Light and scattered showers were expected throughout the evening and into Friday morning, but a threat of storm damage would no longer be an issue.
