State of emergency declared in San Diego County as wildfires rage

  1. Dry conditions and blistering heat have led to multiple fires in the San Diego County, California area on Wednesday, leading Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency. The fires have burnt several homes and prompted thousands of evacuations.
    Two fires broke out at Camp Pendleton, a top US Marine Corps base in northern San Diego County. The blazes charred about 100 acres in areas near Interstate 5, causing the freeway to shut down, the Times of San Diego reported. Some Camp Pendleton residents were forced to flee their housing.
    A separate blaze, dubbed the Poinsettia Fire, resulted in the evacuation of thousands of residents in Carlsbad – less than ten miles from Camp Pendleton – from over 11,000 homes, schools, and businesses. San Diego Gas and Electric reported that an estimated 2,000 residents in and around Carlsbad were without power, and a number of homes were engulfed in flames, according to Reuters.

  2. Yeah, we live near Qualcomm stadium in Tierrasanta. Assuming it would make news if Qualcomm got caught in the fire :hmm: You alright?
     
  3. Haha, I see. Yeah you should be fine. I'm not too close to the flames either, but a lot of highways and such have been closed. It's hot as fucking hell so this isn't surprising at all.

  10. :hmm: The fires spread to a Marine base. I would be worried if it spreads to Mirmar and Cornado, since that's Marines and SEALs area. Just... would seem like a trap :hmm: Maybe I'm looking to far into this.
     
  11. You can never look to far into thing :boss1:
