ICSO says 4 homes in the cul-de-sac in the south end of Ironwood Terrace have been evacuated as a safety precaution.

They say there is no evidence of arson at this point and the fire will  be investigated.

Several agencies are working to the battle the fire including Winterhaven Fire Department, Imperial County Fire Department, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs Fire Department.
