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.
