Wildfire threat eases after 20,000 evacuations

May 14, 2014

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say they are gaining an upper hand on a big wildfire in San Diego that prompted evacuation orders for more than 20,000 homes, allowing some residents to return home.

San Diego Fire Chief Javier Mainar said Tuesday that the biggest threat had passed and that the fire appears to be dying down. He said it's likely children will be back in class Wednesday after schools were evacuated.

San Diego County Sheriff Gore says evacuation orders are being lifted for San Diego residents as the fire moves outside city limits. He expects some county residents will also return home throughout the night.

Authorities say the cause of the fire that began in San Diego's Rancho Bernardo area isn't yet known.
