On Thursday night, firefighters continued to battle the blazes raging in San Diego County as evacuation orders were lifted in some areas and crews on the ground were fighting to protect homes threatened by flames near Escondido.
Ten blazes had burned a total of more than 10,000 acres as flames raced across drought-stricken hillsides, destroying or damaging dozens of structures and forcing hundreds of people to evacuate neighborhoods in the northern part of the county, officials said.
The most active blaze, fire officials said, was in the San Marcos area, where the Cocos fire had charred about 1,200 acres and was threatening homes in unincorporated neighborhoods west of Escondido.
