A number of fires are burning throughout Southern California as the area faces high temperatures and winds. Here's a rundown:

Fires: Carlsbad/Poinsettia Fire Camp Pendleton/Tomahawk Fire Anaheim fire Ventura/Briggs Fire Long Beach fire Bernardo Fire Miguelito Fire

snip

Camp Pendleton: A brush fire burning at Camp Pendleton has lead to an evacuation order for Naval Weapons Station Fallbrook and Camp Pendleton's De Luz housing, according to the Camp Pendleton Scout. It has been named the Tomahawk Fire. Officials say the fire has spread to more than 100 acres, the Associated Press reports.

Mary Fay Pendleton Elementary School on the base has also been ordered to evacuate. Evacuees are being sent to Camp Pendleton's Paige Field House.

When we have high, gusty Santa Ana winds like we do today, I almost expect to see a column of smoke or two in the distance.

The Carlsbad fire was basically across the street from the building I work at. We watched the fire advance down the canyon near the power lines and could see the flames attempting to climb out of the canyon although at the time the wind was blowing it along the street(Camino Vida Roble) at the bottom of the road we work on (Corte Del Nogal), which is perpendicular to that canyon. Eventually, the winds and embers forced the fire department to order a mandatory evacuation a little over 2 hours ago and now I'm at home watching the news and hoping the building I work in doesn't burn down.

It is 65 in Tulsa right now. Will get down to 47 tonight. Cold. I've only run the AC once this year so far - on Mother's day. I love global cooling.

Change is the only constant in climate.

Nevertheless, FOX had a bulletin on these fires and some arresting clips of "fire-nados" where the flames were shaped into mini-tornado-like vortices by the heat and wind. It was an arresting visual.

I went to kindergarten there. I have memories of the fires behind our house. I pray they get this under control very soon.

Nevada fire fighters up here are all salivating and waiting by the phones hoping to get called to the California fires, as usual this time of year.

Bigtime pay, triple overtime, per diem meals (three hots!), hotel rooms, equipment maintenance they just don't get in NV, hot showers, buffet lines, all that and more with California paying through the nose for every last penny to stop a wildfire where it would make far more economic and ecologic sense to allow it to just burn itself out.

Nevada fire fighters just LOOOOOVE them some Calfornia fires. California spends billions. BEEEEEEELIONS. Wish California burned all year long!

"Awww yeah! California on FIRE! Gonna buy me a brand new shiny red Ford Super Duty F350 Lariat King Ranch with the Powerstroke Diesel!" they're all saying. You better believe.

I’m more or less living right in the middle of the 6 current fires burning and there are several hundred thousand people in this region and we can use all the help we can get.

I was at Disneyland in 2007 when there was a small fire in the foothills of the mountains. Smoke and ash blew right down main street, USA for about 5 minutes. It made a mess of everything and delayed the next parade. That was just a burning car which caught the surronding vegetation on fire. I shudder to think of what these big fires are doing.

“Half Of The US Is In A Drought”

Don’t know where you got the graphic or from when, but I live in SW Idaho and we’ve had a lot of water. No drought here... Maybe 2 inches of rain over the last two weeks alone. Having the grass dry out enough to cut it has been a big problem. All spring it has been that way pretty much.

If you were by that comment simply parroting what you believe Nevada firefighters are saying, then you should say so plainly and apologize for your thoughtless writing.

Otherwise, if those are indeed your personal sentiments, then there are plenty of people on FR right now who await either your abject apology or your permanent departure from FR.

That was disgusting. Of course firefighters get paid. And they even get three meals (sometimes). Do doctors dance a jig every time there’s a car wreck, or someone has a heart attack?

Yes, firefighters get paid. But they also die, just trying to save a few houses. That kind of cynicism is the reason that many people turn against conservatives. Out of all the ways to see this story, you see it as a government spending story.
SO do you suggest they should do it for free, should they just let Cali burn? Or do you suggest it would be cheaper for Cali to maintain a giant firefighting capability instead of turning to surrounding areas to contract work at peak demand?

Weird

Thanks a lot KG9. I was a Chilao Hotshot many many years ago and I saw how you Nevada firefighters DID NOT fight fire.
So good luck with that truck, you GOUL.

Here in North County, another fire (or maybe two) just came up near UC San Marcos. It’s over 5 miles (as the crow flies) from the Poinsettia fire.

Is someone setting these fires?

Usually a cruel and unwarranted wish is visited upon the one that utters it. I don't wish pain and suffering upon innocents just to get a few idiots.

9 fires actively burning in San Diego County:
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/edit?mid=zwCcp9fuZHOw.k0nyColtCA7s

Info on school closures in the North San Diego area:
Fires raging throughout the north county have prompted several evacuations and closures at schools and colleges.

The fast-moving Pointsettia Fire caused the Carlsbad Unified School District to close all campuses for the rest of the week to accommodate students, personnel and families affected by the destructive blaze.

“That will allow our families to stay with their children until we work through this (fire),” said Carlsbad Superintendent Suzette Lovely.

The Encinitas Union, San Marcos Unified, Oceanside Unified, and Poway Unified school districts will close their campuses on Thursday, with plans to resume classes on Friday. Cal State San Marcos has also canceled classes — and postponed final exams — scheduled for Thursday.

(I also heard Vista was canceling their schools tomorrow, but don’t have confirmation of that.)

I don’t believe your map. I traveled from the Rocky Mountains in NM, across the Oklahoma panhandle all the way to central Oklahoma. From Springer, NM clear to central Oklahoma was the greenest I have seen it in 63 years.

If it had been that green 62 years ago we would never have left the high plains.
