A wildfire that has burned nearly 23,000 acres in Southern California’s Santa Ana Mountains is showing renewed activity despite being 100 percent contained over the weekend.

A flare-up at the Holy Fire has reported slopped outside of containment lines and has grown to 40 acres. Forest Service officials five air tankers and four helicopters have been dispatched.

The Holy Fire broke out Aug. 6 in the area of Holy Jim Canyon, northwest of Lake Elsinore. A local resident has been charged with arson.
