San Diego County brush fire destroys 20 structures

Sweetwater Fire

It's unclear where those horses came from. Keith Brackpool, chairman of West Coast operations for The Stronach Group at Santa Anita, noted that transportation between tracks was made hard because the fire around San Luis Rey necessitated significant road closures. The blaze in Bel-Air destroyed four homes and damaged 11 others.

Steve Rothblum, who works closely with trainer Doug O'Neill, said their stable got "six to 15" horses off the property before sheriff's officials put a halt to traffic because of the flames.

"They said they've never seen anything like it", Machowsky added. "This is that worst-case scenario that we prepare for but hope doesn't happen". Officials said the fire was growing at a "dangerous rate" thanks to high-speed winds in the area.

"He said it was like an end-of-the-world scene", Rothblum said.

According to the facility's website, San Luis Rey is the only training track continuously approved by the California Horse Racing Board dating back to 1984 - meaning horses can ship from there and race the same day. There were sustained winds of more than 20 miles per hour in Southern California on Thursday, which made controlling fires very hard for fire officials. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in the county, in addition to Los Angeles and Ventura counties, where other massive brush fires were burning.

Road closures are in effect on Old Hwy 395 between W. Lilac Rd. Images from local San Diego County news stations and Twitter posts from horsemen showed videos of horses running freely on the track and in the stable area as smoke and flames engulfed the surrounding areas.

Evacuation orders were in place for homes East of E. Vista Way and Mission Road, South of Highway 76, West of I 15 Freeway, North of Gopher Canyon Road and East of East Village Way and Mission Road. As of 2:35 p.m., it was 1,000 acres in size with zero containment.
