BONSALL, Calif.  – A 93-year-old man who was reported missing during the Lilac Fire has been reunited with his wife.

Pat Bailey had been searching for her husband Ralph since Thursday morning, when their mobile home at Rancho Monserate Country Club was evacuated, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Bailey was reunited with his wife this morning after neighbors found him and took him to a sheriff's deputy, according to a San Diego County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman.

No other people have been reported as missing to the sheriff in connection to the fire, she said.

The Lilac Fire broke out Thursday morning near Fallbrook. It has scorched 4,100 acres and destroyed at least 105 structures, many of them in the area where the Baileys live.

As of 7:30 p.m. Friday, the fire was 15 percent contained.
