Officials in southern California used loudspeakers to order the mandatory evacuation of 11,600 homes north of San Diego on Wednesday, as more wildfires fed by wind and a heat wave torched the area.
 
State officials confirmed that the 250-acre brush fire has burned 30 homes in Carlsbad, Calif., and San Diego County declared a local emergency as five separate wildland fires burned there.
 
Rides at Legoland amusement park were evacuated after power outages caused by the fires knocked out electricity to the park. Evacuation orders have been instituted, and in some cases lifted, for tens of thousands of homes due to the brush fires dotting the San Diego area. Evacuation of military housing at Camp Pendleton, north of San Diego, was ordered as well.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do some research on this. We grabbed a book from our location library but I believe I learned a lot more from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there…
