LOS ANGELES (AP) More than 1800 residents fled their homes today as fires rampaged unchecked over a huge swath of remote and relatively unpopulated brush and grassland in Southern California. An estimated 1500 persons were ordered out of their homes during the night in northern San Diego County, where fire had blackened at least 45,000 acres. The biggest fire started yesterday on Camp Pendleton about 15 miles south of the western White House, but it was burning eastward today and said to be no threat to President Nixon's seaside residence.

No deaths or injuries were reported. Officials said they could not stop a file near Fallbrook, 85 miles south of Los Angeles, from a valley containing several hundred homes and a trailer park. In El Cajon, a San Diego suburb, a small fire consumed six houses before it was put out. Three major fires still burned uncontrolled in San Diego County, and two others in San Bernardino County. Winds fanned the Camp Pendleton fire about 30 miles south of Los Angeles across 20,000 acres of dry brush and into the adjacent Cleveland National Forest, where it burned 5000 timbered acres.

Two fires in San Bernardino County 60 miles east of Los Angeles burned about 1900 acres, creeping within a few hundred feet of houses. For Southern California, it is only the beginning of the fire and smog and hot weather season. Some of the hottest, dryest weather comes in September and October. ft 4 1 .1 Tongue-iti-C'licck He was asked in the question period a number of tongue-in-cheek questions, anionu them if he'd like to run for i i become a United Slates Senator.
