CALIF. WILDFIRES BATTLED

SAN DIEGO - Firefighters have gained ground on a pair of California wildfires thanks to calm winds overnight but they are concerned about hot and gusty conditions forecast for the afternoon.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department's Lee Swanson said today a fire burning on the outskirts of San Diego is 25 percent contained and has scorched 1,550 acres.

Firefighters hope to have the blaze near upscale housing developments 50 percent contained by day's end but they face hot, dry and gusty conditions.

Calmer winds also aided firefighters in Santa Barbara County where a 700-acre wildfire is 5 percent contained.

Evacuation orders for thousands of residents near the San Diego fire were lifted Tuesday night. Evacuation orders have also been lifted for all but a handful of homes and businesses in Santa Barbara County.

Instead the appeals court said it didn't have enough information to decide the merits of the case without a copy of the presentence report detailing Asim Taylor's background.

In January 2013, Lorain County Probate Judge James Walther said Taylor couldn't have more children while he is on probation for five years. The judge said the order would be lifted if Taylor pays nearly $100,000 in overdue support for his four children.

The (Elyria) Chronicle-Telegram reports that Taylor's attorney is arguing that the order violates his right to reproduce.
