Bernardo fire burns into horse country
San Diego - The Bernardo Fire burned into San Diego's horse country prompting the evacuations of hundreds or horses.
About 800 of them wound up at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. While the fairgrounds were not designated as an official evacuation center, people still brought their horses to the fairgrounds and the fairgrounds said all were welcome.
"If you do show up, you will not be turned away," said Linda Zweig, the spokeswoman for the fairgrounds.
Though evacuation orders were lifted around the county by evening, horse owners won't be able to bring their horses home from the fairgrounds until 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. That's when the venue will allow trailers to leave.
