  1. Keep your eyes on the Harmony Grove/Del Dios fire. That one came west into La Costa in 1996.

    A mandatory evacuation order will remain in place in Olivenhain for at least one more day, Encinitas Fire Department Chief Mark Muir told the City Council Tuesday.

    Firefighters have taken positions east of Olivenhain to defend brushy and wooded topography south of Escondido Creek, he said. If the fire were to enter the creek's drainage, it could spread quickly to Olivenhain, a rural community of east Encinitas.

    Mandatory evacuations of Olivenhain were ordered at 8:30 p.m. Monday. The Army National Guard is operating roadblocks and sheriff's deputies are patrolling the community to protect property from looters, sheriff's Capt. Don Fowler said.

    Some Olivenhain residents have found refuge at the Encinitas Community and Senior Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive. The evacuation center will remain open for at least one more day, officials said.
