March 8, 2014 (East County) –I-8 has been reopened and evacuations inside Cleveland National Forest have been lifted, the USFS confirms.

The Gun Fire (named for the area it started near a gun range) is now 5% contained and has burned an estimated 75 to 100 acres.

Power is out on Mt. Laguna due to SDG&E cutting off power when fire burned near the lines in windy conditions.
