Thousands of people in San Diego, California were displaced from their homes and classes were cancelled due to huge separate wildfires, the Chicago Tribune reported on May 15.
Evacuation advisories were given to thousands of residents and California State University students after a series of wildfires broke out on May 14. Over 9,000 acres were ravaged by nine wildfires in different parts of San Diego, which destroyed several properties in some areas. In Carlsbad, authorities stated that an estimated $18.5 million worth of property was damaged by fire. There have been no reported injuries due to the fires, and Governor Jerry Brown has issued a state of emergency for the affected counties.
