Firefighters Mop Up Southern California Wildfires

150 acres burned near Laguna Beach



LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters are patrolling for hotspots in the aftermath of a Southern California wildfire that forced the evacuation of about 2,000 homes over the weekend.

Authorities say there are no visible flames Monday morning. Firefighters have completed containment lines around 55 percent of the 150-acre (61-hectare) blaze near Aliso Viejo and Laguna Beach.

No homes were damaged, and the last evacuation orders were lifted Sunday evening.

In San Diego, crews watched for hotspots overnight after a fire forced evacuation of about 80 homes Sunday.

The fire was held to 38 acres (15 hectares) with the help of air drops. Police say the cause is under investigation.

A number of other small fires were stopped around the state, including one that burned two trailers at Lake Nacimiento in San Luis Obispo County.
