SAN DIEGO (CNS) - People who remain evacuated from their homes due to the Lilac Fire have been consolidated to two shelters.
Officials have closed the East Valley Community Center and Pala Casino shelters. About 110 people remain at shelters at Palomar College in San Marcos and Bostonia Park and Recreation Center in El Cajon, according to San Diego County.
The American Red Cross does not need any supplies dropped off at the shelters, according to a spokeswoman.

"Our top priority is maintaining the shelters and serving the immediate needs of the shelter residents, so dropping off items can be a detraction from that effort," spokeswoman Emily Cox said. "The fastest way to help right now is with a financial donation to assist disaster relief efforts."
To donate, visit www.redcross.org/donate, call 1-800-Red-Cross or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
