Late last night the evacuation orders were lifted and people were allowed to return to their homes. However the fire, called the Bernardo Fire, is still only 5% contained. Yesterday Poway Unified School District administrators evacuated students from Del Sur, Stone Ranch and Willow Grove elementary schools Students at Del Norte High School and at Oak Valley middle school stayed in classrooms as precautions.
