KFI is reporting that there are two fires down south, one that is near Newport Beach: "Four helicopters are dropping water on a fire in the Bonita Canyon area of Newport Beach, where 75 firefighters on the ground are battling a brush fire that has spread to about 100 acres and is reportedly close to structures. Meanwhile, authorities say a 100-acre fire at Camp Pendleton has forced the evacuation of a military housing area and several neighborhoods near the Marine base." UPDATE, 5:42 P.M.: The Newport Beach fire has reportedly been contained with a few spot fires still lit. Evacuations have been halted.
