An out-of-control brush fire at Camp Pendleton was creeping closer to the San Onofre nuclear power plant, prompting evacuations.
Southern California Edison said in a tweet that “about a dozen non-essential employees evacuated” from the plant because of the fire.
The plant is located off Interstate 5 at the Orange-San Diego county line north of Camp Pendleton. Edison announced last year it was closing the plant due to structural problems with facility.
The proclamation states that more than 20 structures, including homes, have been destroyed.
Cal State San Marcos evacuated; 30 homes burn in Carlsbad.
