250,000 flee raging wildfires around San Diego

SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) -- A quarter-million people fled their homes amid wildfires that had burned 100,000 acres around San Diego County, officials said Monday.

Five homes burned to the ground Monday morning on a Rancho Bernardo, California, cul-de-sac.

"The situation continues to deteriorate," fire chief Bill Metcalf said at 10 a.m. Pacific time, with numerous structures lost across the county.

"I think there's a very good possibility it will reach the coast before it's finished," Metcalf said of one of the fiercest blazes.

Metcalf said the fires were consuming homes in the communities of Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Forest Ranch and Lake Hodges.

"We have more houses burning than we have people and engine companies to fight them," San Diego Fire Capt. Lisa Blake said, according to the Associated Press. "A lot of people are going to lose their homes today."

On one cul-de-sac in the San Diego suburb of Rancho Bernardo, five of six homes burned to the ground, leaving flames from gas lines flickering amid the ruins, according to a KGTV report.

Show me perfect conditions for fires in CA, and there will be fires. They will start in the exact perfect place, at the exact perfect time. The firefighters love flying around in their helicopters, they love getting paid overtime to ride around in those shiny machines. Hell, half the time they start the damn fires. Do they watch the critical areas? Do they cut fire breaks in their spare time? Hell no x 2. They sit with their thumbs up their butts and wait for the fires. I would say idiocracy at it's finest, but it isn't, it is exactly the way they want it.

When this is all over they will rebuild the tinderbox McMansions, even bigger than before.

Just declare it a "disaster area", and voila!
