'The fire spread rapidly'
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
We were evacuated from work office in Carlsbad on Wednesday May 14th when the fires first started. By the time we made it home to Coronado Hills, that area was evacuated too. The work the fire fighters do is tireless, brave and the ultimate expression of community. Although many homes were lost, everyone owes these men and women a debt of gratitude.
The first few photos are the beginning of the Carlsbad fire followed by photos of the Coco's fire as it began to consume Coronado Hills. Last photo is Cal State San Marcos surrounded by the burn.
