Gov. Brown: Wildfires Still Threatening, But 'Under Control for the Moment'

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Thousands of California residents are returning to their homes after at least 10 fires ravaged parts of San Diego County.

Four active fires are still remaining.

The wildfires burned a total of 27,000 acres and have caused nearly $20 million in damages.

On ABC's This Week, California Governor Jerry Brown says this might be just the beginning of a long fire season.

"Yes, it's under control for the moment, but we're in a very serious fire season, more serious than we've seen before so we have to watch and be very careful," Brown said.

A number of evacuation orders have already been lifted, but the threat of more blazes remains high. ABC's Bazi Kanani in San Diego says firefighters are making good progress and officials expect all evacuation orders to be lifted by the end of Sunday.
