More than 1300 structures- homes and businesses- have been destroyed. Thus far- 2 have been killed and dozens injured in the Southland wildfires.
Very few of the fires are more than 25% contained- many of the fires have less than 10% containment.
The estimated half-million people evacuated have been in the San Diego area. At least 10000 people have camped out at the city's NFL football stadium.
Weather conditions are forecast to improve over the next few days which may provide a chance for thousands of firefighters to control the blazes.
