Brush Fire Burns Rapidly, Threatens Structures in San Bernardino
A brush fire burned two to three acres in San Bernardino Saturday, posing a minor threat to nearby structures, authorities said.
It was reported near West Thompson Place and North Arrowhead Avenue shortly before 11 a.m., burning up a hillside toward some homes along Egerton Drive, according to the San Bernardino Fire Department.
At 11:35 a.m., fire officials said the fire’s forward rate of spread had been stopped and crews were mopping up the damage. Some homes were lost a week earlier in a wildfire burning in the same area, officials said.
Earlier, authorities said the brush fire was burning with a rapid rate of spread.
