first_img Posted: December 16, 2017 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Lilac Fire finally 100% contained after 10 days of battling SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — After 10 days of destruction, the Lilac Fire was 100 percent contained Saturday, fire officials announced.”A big thank you to our local, state and federal cooperators,” Cal Fire San Diego tweeted around 6 a.m. “We couldn’t do it without our great partnerships and teamwork.”In total, 1,659 firefighters and other personnel helped battle the blaze.The Lilac Fire destroyed 157 structures — many of them dwellings in the Rancho Monserate Country Club mobile home park in Fallbrook — and damaged 64 more. No human deaths were reported, but at least 46 horses died, many of them stabled at the San Luis Rey Downs Training Center in Bonsall.The Santa Ana winds that fueled the massive blaze returned earlier this week and were set to return again Sunday, though weaker than they were when the fire started.A fire weather watch was issued for San Diego County on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties will be under a red flag warning during the same time period.Locally, fire agencies are bracing for any new fires, while in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, fire crews are continuing to battle the even-larger Thomas Fire.That blaze, which broke out 12 days ago and is still only 40 percent contained, has now grown to the third-largest in California’s history at more than 259,000 acres burned. Full containment is not expected until early January.The 2003 Cedar Fire in San Diego County still holds the record as the state’s largest wildfire at 273,246 acres, while the 2007 Witch Fire and 1970 Laguna Fire, both in San Diego County, are also among the 10 largest in California history.center_img , December 16, 2017last_img read more

REUTERS/Rupak De Chowdhuri/File PhotoReutersThe State Bank of India has capped the maximum withdrawal amount for two versions of its debit cards. Classic and Maestro cardholders who so far could draw up to Rs 40,000 in a day from ATMs, cannot any more as they have been capped to Rs 20,000. This goes into effect starting Wednesday, 31 October.The centralised bank released a statement regarding this development, saying that if the user requires a higher limit on their cards, they might need to apply for a different card with a higher withdrawal limit. The bank seems to have made this decision to lower the rate of ATM frauds in the country. The classic variant of the SBI card is not a chip based one and still depends on swiping the magnetic strip, which is not difficult to copy or duplicate. A report by the IndiaToday has pointed out that this move could reduce instances of cloning cards. Classic cards that do not come with chip-enabled security will not be able to withdraw over Rs 20,000 starting todayIBT IndiaWith the country’s largest festival season coming up, this could end up affecting over 42 crore customers of the bank, one of the biggest in the country.”We analysed all the ATM transactions and we found that most of them are less than Rs 20,000 a day,” said SBI managing director PK Gupta. However, in cases of reported frauds the bank found that in all such cases, the limit of Rs 40,000 is withdrawn. “So this is basically to protect the customers and secondly, we want that more such (digital) transactions should happen.”last_img read more
