Officials in Oakland say residents were being evacuated from an area near a fast-moving grass fire that was threatening at least 50 structures including several homes.

The blaze is also burning into the cities of Anaheim and Chino Hills, authorities said.

Authorities said it eventually spread at a "moderate" rate to Coal Canyon Road off the freeway, according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi, NBC Los Angeles reported. According to the Corona Fire Department, John Adams Elementary School, Cesar Chavez Academy, Coronita Elementary School and Prado View Elementary School will be closed Tuesday.
