Firefighters in a helicopter drop water on the so-called Poinsettia Fire in Carlsbad, California May 14, 2014. At least two structures burned to the ground and some 15,000 homes and businesses were told to evacuate on Wednesday as the wind-lashed wildfire roared out of control in the heart of a Southern California coastal community. The blaze, which erupted shortly before 11 a.m. in Carlsbad, some 25 miles north of San Diego, quickly became the most pressing battle for crews fighting flames across the region amid soaring temperatures and hot Santa Ana winds.
