CAMPO, Calif. (AP) - Firefighters got a break from predicted overnight winds and were able to contain 75 percent of a 900-acre wildfire in mountainous eastern San Diego County.
Firefighters said today that despite high wind warnings, it remained calm around the fire east of Campo. That enabled fire crews to boost containment from 30 percent to 75 percent.
More than 800 firefighters were battling the rural blaze, and full containment was expected Wednesday night.
One house has burned and 150 homes have been evacuated. Evacuation orders remained in effect Tuesday because of road conditions and emergency equipment in the area, Mohler said.
Meanwhile, A 2,171-acre wildfire that erupted Saturday in a remote area of Riverside County between Beaumont and San Jacinto remained fully contained, and authorities said full control was expected by this evening.
In Northern California, two homes burned Monday afternoon in Los Molinos in Tehama County, about 115 miles north of Sacramento.
