During a second day of a sweltering heat wave, flames engulfed suburban homes and shot up along canyon ridges in one of the worst of several blazes that broke out Wednesday in Southern California.

Thick black smoke darkened blue skies over the Pacific coast city of Carlsbad, about 30 miles north of San Diego, known for its Legoland California amusement park. The park was closed Wednesday because of a power outage caused by the fire.

At least two firefighters suffered minor injuries — one heat-related and one from smoke inhalation — since Tuesday.
