San Diego Fires: Morning Maps and Information

Oops, that nap turned into a full night of sleep. I guess I was tired...and probably should've had food yesterday.

Anyway, looks like there is little change in activity overall:

Here is an updated map of the fire perimeter and evacuation areas.

The North 5 is closed due to the fire at Camp Pendleton (from SD Emergency Services):
The freeway is closed in both directions between Highway 76 and Cristianitos Road due to the fire at Camp Pendleton . Traffic at the south end of the closure is being diverted to Camino del Rey to Old Highway 395 to Interstate 15.

More Overnight North County Mandatory Evacuations (from SD Emergency Services):
Reverse 9-1-1 was used to issue mandatory evacuations in the communities of Bonsall, San Luis Rey Heights and Winterwarm on the north side of Highway 76. Residents should use Highway 76 heading west away from the fires. SHELTER UPDATE IN OCEANSIDE: The Oceanside Police Department reports that the shelter at El Camino High School is full and evacuees should to go to MiraCosta College at 1 Barnard Drive off of College Avenue, north of Highway 78 in Oceanside .

For people in Ramona who refused to leave, a boil water mandate has been issued because the tap water cannot be deemed safe.

Channel 7/39 has a preliminary list of homes burned in Escondido.

Additional support from Mexican firefighters was short-lived. 30 fire personnel from Tijuana and Tecate were forced to return to Mexico as fires kicked up south of the border.
