A fast-moving wildfire broke out in San Diego County Thursday, quickly consuming 2,500 acres, officials said. The blaze appears to be moving and growing extremely rapidly. San Diego Fire-Rescue and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton were sending water-dropping helicopters to assist in the firefight.

A major contributing factor to the rapid spread of the fire was the intense Santa Ana winds, which apparently downed palm trees and allowed new fires to begin.

A wind-driven wildfire tore over thousands of acres near Fallbrook Thursday, gutting at least 20 structures while threatening hundreds of others, injuring several people, closing roads and forcing widespread evacuations.

Within an hour, the burn area had grown to about 50 acres as ground and airborne crews labored to keep the blaze - dubbed the Lilac Fire - from becoming a disastrously out-of-control conflagration like others raging this week across Southern California. Two firefighters battling the blaze have been hospitalized and were expected to recover.

A climate expert at UC San Diego says Santa Ana winds typically peak during the coldest months of the year, adding to the concern of fire danger extending late into the year.

"Some of the lower barns-portable barns-caught on fire", Machowsky said, relaying a phone conversation he had with trainer Michele Dollase a half-hour earlier.

The incident, which has been named the Lilac fire, started off of South Interstate 15, and is being blown northwest away from the freeway toward Sullivan Middle School and State Route 76.

A mobile home park, a country club and two schools have been evacuated. Authorities set up an evacuation center for the displaced at Great Oak High School in Temecula.

Images of mansions and homes in flames shared on social media prompted fears of a similar level of destruction in San Diego County where extreme weather conditions came in the color purple.
