Fires Still Raging in San Diego County

iStock/Thinkstock(SAN DIEGO) -- Firefighters battling multiple blazes in San Diego County, California, likely won't be out of the woods, even with a cooling trend predicted for the weekend.

Since Tuesday, the wildfires have destroyed 10,000 acres as San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacob has told residents to obey evacuation orders, according to The Los Angeles Times.

So far, 13,000 homes and businesses in San Marcos have been told to evacuate with fires in the area north of San Diego just five percent contained as of Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, both military aircraft and helicopters were providing support for crews on the ground.

Although extreme summer-like temperatures should start becoming more seasonal this weekend, the firefighters are still dealing with pervasive drought conditions and strong Santa Ana winds.
