SAN MARCOS, Calif. (AP) - The San Diego County sheriff says nearly 13,000 new evacuation notices have been issued due to a wildfire burning around the city of San Marcos.
Sheriff Bill Gore said the notifications transmitted to phone numbers in the area are due to a Thursday afternoon flare-up and erratic winds.
More than 20,000 evacuation notices were issued when the fire broke out Wednesday.
The fire is currently the most dangerous of nine wildfires that have erupted in the county this week. The fire has grown to 1,000 acres and is only 5 percent contained.
