Mixed outlook for Harris Fire

The outook for the Harris fire in San Diego County is both good and bad, said Fred Orsporn, a spokesman for Cal Fire.

Good, he said, because residents can return to some neighborhoods in the western part of the fire's area, near Jamul, an upscale community of about 6,000 in a hilly region about 20 miles east of the city of San Diego.

But bad because the eastern portion of the fire is still raging and moving further northeast. Today, firefighters will concentrate on the eastern part of the Harris fire, trying to, as Orsporn said, "close that back door." No additional homes are threatened, he said.
