While no injuries were reported, the number of mandatory evacuations increased from 1,000 residents to 1,500 residents, totalling an estimated 500 homes, according to Concialdi.
As many as 1,500 Corona residents were forced to evacuate Monday as flames spread rapidly across 2,000 acres in the Santa Ana Mountains near the Anaheim-Corona border and threatened homes.
The blaze is being called the Canyon Fire and has already burned around 2,000 acres.
As of Tuesday morning, the fire was only five percent contained.
The Oakland Fire Department and Oakland Police Department issued a statement saying they were working together to evacuate residences in the area closest to the fire.
The fire began spreading at a "rapid rate" around 3 p.m. Monday, fanned by Santa Ana winds blowing at 20 to 25 miles per hour.
Corona High School's gym opened as the local evacuation shelter.

As of the middle of the afternoon, OCFA PIO was reporting that about a hundred firefighters were at the scene, with three helicopters and a fixed wing making drops.
The winds will push the fire southwest most of the day Tuesday before steering flames east toward Corona in the evening, he said.
By 7 p.m. Monday, evacuation orders were expanded to areas south of Green River Road from the 91 Freeway to Trudy Lane at Orchard Glen.
Additionally, crews were setting backfires, hoping to keep the fire from crossing the freeway.
The fire prompted the Corona Norco Unified School District to cancel classes today at four schools - Coronita Elementary School, John Adams Elementary School, Cesar Chavez Academy and Prado View Elementary School - due to active evacuations, road closures and poor air quality, district officials announced on Facebook.
But with some lanes closed, traffic was backed up for several miles.
