Wildfire Forces 20,000 Evacuations Near San Diego

Wildfire Forces 20,000 Evacuations Near San Diego

AP: A wildfire roaring through Southern California forced evacuation orders for more than 20,000 homes on Tuesday, but so far only one mobile home burned as a high-pressure system brought unseasonable heat and gusty winds to the parched state.

San Diego’s Emergency Operations Center says most of the homes are in the city and northern San Diego County.

The 700-acre blaze erupted Tuesday morning, fueled by canyons full of brush and pushed by hot, dry winds. At least two high schools and one elementary school also were evacuated, police Detective Gary Hassen said.
