Firefighters in the region are currently battling record-high heat in an attempt to quell fires that have consumed nearly 10,000 acres since Tuesday morning. In total, nine separate fires have engulfed the area causing the displacement of thousands of San Diego County residents as well as closing schools, colleges, and attractions in the region. Several homes have been destroyed by the blazes as well as an eighteen-unit apartment complex in the coastal town of Carlsbad. As of early Thursday afternoon, there had been nearly 20,000 evacuation notices sent to the residents of San Marcos, CA as a 700-acre fire there threatened the local community. With temperatures set to reach triple digits for the third straight day of a mid-May heatwave, San Diego County firefighters were set to face another challenging day in a region that has been scorched by year-long drought conditions.
