San Diego County Fires: 9 Wildfires Burn, Thousands Flee Southern California Wildfires

Residents ordered to evacuate more than 20,000 homes in and around San Diego because of a wildfire have been allowed to go back.
The fire had spread amid high heat and dry winds in drought conditions but firefighters said it was being brought under control within hours as darkness fell and the weather cooled.
There are no reports of injuries or damage to homes.
“At the point the fire is right now, we believe we have a pretty good handle on it,” San Diego Fire Chief Javier Mainar said.
“I think the largest part of the emergency has passed.”
The flames began in the fire-prone Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego and quickly spread to 700 acres (280 hectares), driven by hot, dry Santa Ana winds.
By late afternoon, the flames had ripped through canyons to approach expensive homes and new subdivisions on the ridges, moving on to Rancho Santa Fe, one of the wealthiest US communities, known for its multimillion-dollar homes, golfing and horse riding.
Months of drought have left much of the landscape susceptible to fire.
Central Los Angeles has recorded just 6.08 inches of rain this season – less than half its annual average rainfall.
“Fire season last year never really ended in Southern California,” said forestry and fire protection department spokesman Daniel Berlan.
His department has responded to more than 1,350 fires since January 1, compared with an average of 700.
The 700-acre blaze in San Diego has been caused by dry weather and winds.
