CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — All evacuation orders have been lifted at Camp Pendleton in Southern California, where firefighters gained ground on a wildfire that has burned nearly 4 square miles of dry brush.

Marine officials said in a statement that about 230 residents were allowed to return to their housing unit near Lake O’Neil Sunday evening. Some 30 patients evacuated from Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton because of a power outage have been returned and the facility is fully functional.

The fire, which broke out Saturday amid hot and blustery conditions, was 20 percent contained early Monday.

To the north, crews are keeping watch on a 50-acre fire sparked Sunday in a mulch pile at a nursery near Santiago Canyon in Orange County. Voluntary evacuations were ordered for several homes because of heavy smoke. That fire was 25 percent contained.
