The wildfire that killed two people and destroyed more than 1,100 homes in north San Diego County last week also roared through Southern California's last undivided Mexican land grant but apparently did little long-lasting damage. State officials credited fire-mitigation work by managers of Rancho Guejito for saving Indian archaeological sites and historic structures on the 21,400 acres of steep mountains and broad valleys crisscrossed by streams.

ASTRIDE his horse, Benjamin Coates could gaze across 21,400 acres and see the sweep of his power reflected in nature. A riot of mesas and meadows laced with gurgling streams. Miles of chaparral and clusters of stately oaks. A mountain that Native Americans considered a deity. Herds of deer, golden eagles overhead, enough wildlife to stock a zoo. And not another soul in sight. This was Xanadu and it belonged to Coates.

High humidity on Saturday helped firefighters who were attempting to control a blaze that consumed 83 acres of brush east of Lake Wohlford in northeastern San Diego County. Forestry inmate crews had contained the blaze by Saturday afternoon, and, thanks in part to the unusually humid conditions, were expecting to have it under control by late Saturday, according to the California Department of Forestry.

The year 1821 brought Mexico's independence from Spain and, with it, the gradual ending of the mission period in California. In 1833, the Mexican Congress ordered the governor in California to secularize and seize the vast Franciscan holdings of fertile fields and livestock. They issued land grants to those thought deserving and capable of furthering the region's economic fortunes. Some 553 grants would eventually be allotted, thus inaugurating the rancho era.
