The brush fire in a rugged portion of northeast San Diego that burned 7,055 acres and destroyed 120 structures, most of them at the Al Bahr Mt. Laguna Shrine campground, is 85% contained and all evacuation orders have been lifted, Cal-Fire said Thursday. The El Prado, Laguna and Horse Heaven campgrounds, which were ordered evacuated, have been spared damage. But the Foster Lodge campground, near the Al Bahr campground, was damaged, Cal-Fire said. The blaze has been dubbed the Chariot fire because it was first spotted Saturday near Chariot Canyon southeast of Julian.

The U.S. Forest Service is seeking public input as it begins to update its management plan for the Cleveland National Forest and three other Southern California forests. The plan, scheduled to be completed in 2003, will govern rare species protection, cellular phone antennas, off-road vehicle use and other issues in the national forests for 10 to 15 years. "The land management plan will be sort of like our bible," said Clem Lagrosa, Trabuco district ranger.
