USA — Firefighters have surrounded a 225-acre wildfire that forced the evacuation of several homes in suburban San Diego.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the blaze started Friday afternoon in Lakeside and was moving toward the Barona Indian Reservation when air and ground crews contained it.

The San Diego County Office of Emergency Services says about 10 homes were evacuated.

Authorities say homes are no longer threatened but residents were not immediately allowed to return home.

Lakeside is about 20 miles east of San Diego and just west of several rural mountain communities. The area was hit hard by wildfires in 2003.
