Multiple Fires Burning in San Diego County

Posted: Updated:
A brush fire has forced evacuation of thousands of people in the Southern California city of Carlsbad and 30 homes have burned.
 
City officials said mandatory evacuations were in progress Wednesday, and more than 11,000 notices were sent to homes and businesses.

State fire Capt. Mike Moehler told KCAL-TV that all of the homes are in the same neighborhood.
 
No injuries were reported.
 
The Legoland California amusement park has been shut down due to a power outage.
 
The blaze was one of several that firefighters in San Diego County were battling amid hot, dry, windy conditions.

Residents are standing by helpless as firefighters attempt to save their homes.

"I wish they could put more water on there. And then, I'll deal with the water. But the cars are gone, that's really upsetting," says resident Greg Saska.

"If it crosses the street then I'm going to be in trouble. Right now we're praying for everyone else who is not as fortunate as we are.
 
The fire on the outskirts of San Diego had threatened thousands of homes Tuesday and was 50% contained.  (AP)
