Wildfires raging in Southern California

Wildfires spread rapidly in Southern California are forcing thousands of residents to evacuate. Scorching temperatures, dry conditions and Santa Ana winds are fueling the flames. Some 10,000 acres has burned in San Diego County, including the nearly uncontrollable fire in San Marcos.

Anderson spoke with San Marcos fire chief, Brett Van Wey. There's still a full evacuation of 5,000 homes in the city. "It's a moving target as far as estimating size, we're only about five percent contained right now," Van Wey said.

Watch Gary Tuchman's report from the frontlines in San Marcos, California.

One family whose home was destroyed spoke to Anderson about the miraculous survival of their dog Rocky.

    The Summer 2014 CNNI Margaret Moth Master's Fellowship sounds interesting. I suppose I shall have to apply for an internship at a local TV station first in Texas. I already have one lined up for the office of the Mayor. I would like an internship in TV and one in Government. So I can be a Government Correspondent. Anderson, I would like to intern with you. I am talented, if you remember I spread my ministry to numerous public figures without a team. Perhaps they still remember me, I hope you still remember me. 'Anderson' I am so proud of you and I know all your dreams will come true. Never give up and never surrender. Remember God opens doors no man can shut and closes doors no man can open. Elisa is a very beautiful and intelligent young lady, and Ismael Estrada seems like 'a man's man' truly adventurous and living life to the fullest. God created a beautiful world, tell Mr. Estrada it is a shame not to experience it's wonders. Anderson, I feel, in my heart, we follow the same paths and if God willing they may cross. I long to "Change the World" Could you honorable young men and women pray for me. I desire strong men and women who support me... Love you Mr. Cooper, Jon
