SAN DIEGO (AP) — Marine Corps officials have lifted an evacuation order for some Camp Pendleton housing although fires that have burned about 34 square miles of brush continue to rage.
Several camp areas and an infantry school remain under evacuation.
A new blaze cropped up Friday in the northwest section of the sprawling coastal base between Los Angeles and San Diego.
Three fires have now burned more than 22,000 acres on the base and surrounding areas. Base spokesman Jeff Nyhart says at their peak, the fires prompted about 8,400 military personnel and their families to leave.
The fires are all only partially surrounded.
