Fire crews in California are trying their best to save as many homes as possible. NBC 4 News in Los Angeles reports that the AlertSanDiego system alerted over 11,000 homes and businesses to evacuate.

As of yesterday, there were at least five major fires burning in San Diego County. Officials blame the record heat and high winds, and some people claim it is global warming bringing in those record temperatures.

California has seen some of the hottest May temperatures on record since data began back in 1896. The fire danger is expected to remain high until Friday, as cooler air is expected to move in.
