SAN DIEGO — Conditions have improved in San Diego, and although hundreds of homes are still threatened, many credit unions in the county are open for business.

Brad Smith, vice president for strategic development at $480 million Pacific Marine Credit Union, says his Camp Pendleton-based credit union is open for business in all branches but one. Fires moved onto the marine base yesterday, and threaten housing developments on the east edge. However, none of the fires threaten PMCU branches.

"The only branch closed today is at the MCRD (Marine Corps Recruiting Depot, located in downtown San Diego), and that's by order of the Commanding General," Smith said. "Only key personnel are allowed on that base, which doesn't include our employees."
