SAN DIEGO — Evacuation warnings are in effect in a Santee neighborhood as firefighters work to put out a 10-acre fire that started during dangerous weather conditions.
The fire is burning in an area off 9500 North Magnolia Avenue, not far from Walker Preserve Trail. A public safety alert was sent to residents in the area about evacuation warnings in effect near Hillcreek and Ramsgate.
Few details about the blaze were immediately available. It broke out as 5,300 SDG&E customers are without power on Thanksgiving Day because of dangerous fire weather. A high wind warning was set to expire at noon, while a red flag warning will be in place until 6 p.m. Friday for San Diego County mountains and inland valleys.
