20,000 homes evacuated as 700-acre fire roars in San Diego County

A rapidly spreading brush fire, fueled by dry conditions and high winds, threatened homes in San Diego’s North County Tuesday and prompted evacuations.

Large plumes of smoke could be seen over the exclusive community of Santaluz and as far west as Interstate 5 after the Bernardo Fire sparked around 11 a.m. near Black Mountain Road west of Interstate 15.

As of 4 p.m., the fire had scorched 700 acres and sent thousands of families either heading to safer ground or preparing their homes for the possibility of evacuation.

No homes have burned and fire crews estimate approximately 5 percent containment.

3. Why haven't they scrambled any F-16s?

That being said, hopefully no one will lose their lives or homes.
