OROVILLE, Calif. - Two new fires are surging and forcing evacuations in California.
  
A blaze that broke out in San Diego County about 2 p.m. Tuesday quickly surged to over half a square mile. It forced the closure of Interstate 8 and the evacuation of five homes in Alpine, a town of 15,000 people about 50 miles northeast of San Diego.
  
In Northern California, the Placer County Sheriff's Office has issued mandatory evacuations along four roads near a 2-acre fire burning north of Auburn.
  
Sacramento television station KCRA reports video shot from its helicopter shows at least one structure has been destroyed by the fire.
