    San Marcos Fire, as viewed from La Jolla

     
    Wednesday afternoon, May 14. Approximately 6:30 p.m. The weather was extremely warm. Unseasonable Santa Ana winds were blowing dry desert winds from east to west, creating the worst possible conditions for wildfires. Usually, this weather pattern comes in September or October. From the beaches of La Jolla, the fires to the northeast appeared almost like a volcano in the distance, spewing big, brown clouds of ash and smoke into the air that spilled out to sea.
