Echo Park blogger Daniel Hernandez -- soon to be Mexico City writer/and maybe blogger -- was in San Diego yesterday, watching the fires and visiting a refugee center. Daniel reported:
Tijuana fire authorities are sending reinforcements north. Traffic jammed at Qualcomm. Many evacuation centers no longer need supplies and donations. Still, fires remain active and some new evacuations are being called. Six people have now died, four of them eldery evacuees. The estimates of people displaced and acreage scorched are just astronomical. The Union-Tribune also has a scenes blog.
As of now (Wednesday morning), there are reportedly three major fires still burning in SD County.
