Authorities are evacuating homes in eastern San Diego County as firefighters battle a 100-acre wildfire that has destroyed one structure.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the fire began around 2 p.m. Sunday in a rural area northeast of Campo and near the Golden Acorn Casino.

Capt. Daryll Pina said the fast-moving fire has destroyed one structure, but he hasn't been able to confirm what it was.

It's not clear how many residents are under the mandatory
evacuation.

Meanwhile, a 2,200-acre wildfire that erupted Saturday in a remote area of Riverside County is 60 percent contained. Authorities say they expect full containment of the blaze burning between Beaumont and San Jacinto to be fully contained Sunday evening.
