Drought in Southern California climaxed and hot Santa Ana winds blew starting on 9/25 and ending on 9/30. Winds peaked at 60 mph at Cuyamaca. The winds sparked the Laguna Fire, one of the largest in California history. Eight were killed, 400 homes were destroyed, and 185,000 acres were burned as of 9/28 from Cuyamaca to Alpine. In all, the fire consumed whole communities of interior San Diego County. Half a million acres were burned and caused fifty million dollars in damage.
