RIVERSIDE – (INT) - The second wildfire in as many months in Riverside’s Sycamore Canyon Park is history.

The Riverside Fire Department responded with about 100 personnel, two dozen fire trucks, two air tankers, a helicopter and a pair of bulldozers.
Flames burned across 250 acres of dry weeds and brush before it was contained at 5pm Sunday.
