California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in San Diego County Wednesday. Drought conditions have made fire danger extremely high throughout much of California. The worst was in the coastal city of Carlsbad, about 30 miles north of San Diego. Two commercial buildings have been lost between others in this city. The city’s fire chief said the blazes were unprecedented in his 27-year firefighting career because they are so early in the year. Legoland Park California was closed when a power outage caused by the fire occurred. San Onofre nuclear power plant and parts of one of the military’s biggest and busiest bases were also affected. Late Wednesday, fire officials said they had stopped the advance of the flames. But others flared up. California State University, San Marcos, which has nearly 10,000 students, was evacuated. A fire that broke out Tuesday forced the evacuation of 20,000 homes. The residents in all around fire-prone areas were encouraged to prepare evacuation plans.
