SAN DIEGO (AP) - A wildfire ignited by lightning continues to burn out of control in northern San Diego County.
State fire Battalion Chief Nick Schuler says the 900-acre fire in the highlands northeast of Warner Springs was active overnight and was only 5 percent contained early Friday.
Residents of the Chihuahua Valley Road area were advised to evacuate but so far no buildings have burned.
The blaze was ignited Thursday by lightning strikes as thunderstorms hit the region Thursday, dumping heavy rain and even some hail in some areas.
