(CNN) – Hundreds of firefighters were battling Wednesday to contain a San Diego wildfire, concerned that California's so-called devil winds would ignite flareups, authorities said.
Meanwhile, more than 20 miles away, another fire Wednesday afternoon prompted the evacuation of amusement park rides at Legoland in Carlsbad, the resort said on its Facebook page.
Back at the San Diego fire, authorities were concerned that hot, dry gusts called Santa Ana winds would set back their efforts since Tuesday morning to contain the wildfire, which improved overnight to 25% from 5%, said Cal Fire incident commander Ray Chaney.
