  • Mexico Wildfires

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - Firefighters have brought all but one of
    the 30 wildfires burning in Mexico under control, and hundreds of
    people evacuated near Ensenada have been allowed to return home, an
    emergency official said Tuesday.
    The fires started this weekend, in part because of unattended
    campfires and intense heat.
    Two began after fires in California jumped the border, burning
    unpopulated forests. One of those fires, near Otay, was under
    control Monday. The other, near Tecate, was still burning but had
    also been brought under control, emergency official Raymundo
    Noriega said.
    As a precaution, firefighters began constructing a fire break
    near Tecate to prevent the spread of more fires.
    Firemen were still fighting a fire burning at a trash dump near
    Ensenada. Two people were killed Sunday when they were trapped in
    their burning home, one of about 15 Ensenada houses destroyed by
    the fire.
    Smoke from the blazes forced authorities to order schools to
    remain closed Wednesday for a second day, and authorities in
    Tijuana advised residents to remain indoors, wear surgical masks
    and keep doors and windows closed.
