A small brush fire started Thursday night at 9:15 p.m. south of Questhaven road just east of San Elijo Hills. The fire is 100% extinguished and burned less then a 1/2 acre of San Diego County owned brush land. The parcel is located south of Venzano and adjacent to Cambria neighborhoods in San Elijo Hills.

San Marcos, Elfin Forest and Cal Fire responded and should be thanked for a quick response. Favorable winds conditions assisted the fire teams. San Elijo Hills residents reported something in the air, potentially a homemade mini hot air balloon.

Couple Left At Altar After Wedding Location Shut Down – San Diego News Story – KGTV San Diego

Property Manger Has Not Repaid Deposit, Couple Says

(Queshaven Road Area of SEH) — Several local couples told 10News that they are losing the location and deposits for their wedding ceremonies. The couples said they had planned their weddings on an estate located just south of San Marcos, but the owner of the property told them he has been shut down. After two years of dating, Josh Rubin and Jeanne Cuevas decided to get married and thought they had found the perfect place to do it. However, one week before the wedding, the couple was given bad news by the property manager.

“And I said, how am I supposed to tell my fiance that? We’re getting married in 7 to 8 days. We’ve been planning this for a year. We’ve got people coming in, caterers, all this stuff, so it’s kind of a shock,” said Rubin. What was even more shocking to the couple was being told that their $2,000 deposit they paid about one year ago was not available to be paid back.

“I don’t have a great deal of money, but I definitely want to work with the brides and the grooms and try and make things right for them,” said property owner Steve Pike. Pike owns the nine-acre property and has been renting it out for weddings for about a year and a half.

Last October, the county began receiving complaints from neighbors that Pike was operating a wedding business illegally. The county warned Pike to either obtain a permit or stop operating, but he did neither.

“Let me ask you this: Have you ever even applied for the Major Use Permit?” asked 10News’ Ariana Duarte. Read more via Couple Left At Altar After Wedding Location Shut Down – San Diego News Story – KGTV San Diego.

Mountain Lion sighting in Lake San Marcos

Our neighbors in Lake San Marcos have shared news that there has been a recent Mountain Lion sighting in their community. This is a reminder that we share our surroundings with various wildlife species and we need to consider this as we spend time in the open space areas and trails that surround our homes.

The following safety tips are provided by the California Department of Fish and Game. They are based on studies of mountain behavior and analysis of attacks by mountain lions.

  • Don’t hike alone. Go in groups, with adults supervising children an keep children close to you. Observations of captured mountain lions reveal that the animals seem especially drawn to children. Keep children within your sight at all times.
  • Don’t approach a lion. Most mountain lions will try to avoid a confrontation. Give them a way to escape.
  • Don’t run from a lion. Running stimulates a mountain lion’s instinct to chase. Instead, stand and face the animal. Make eye contact. If you have small children with you, pick them up if possible so that they don’t panic and run. Although it may be awkward, pick them up without bending over or turning away from the lion.
  • Don’t crouch or bend over. A squatting or bending person looks a lot like a four-legged prey animal.
  • Do all you can to appear larger. Raise your arms. Open your jacket if you are wearing one. Throw stones, branches or whatever you can reach without crouching or turning your back. Wave your arms slowly and speak firmly in a loud voice.
  • Fight back if attacked. Some hikers have fought back successfully with sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools and their bare hands. Since a mountain lion usually tries to bite the head or neck, try to remain standing and face the attacking animal. For more information about mountain lions, contact the Department of Fish and Game (DFG), case of emergency call 911 and DFG at 916-445-0045
