Local news

Crews were battling a fire that had burned at least 60 acres in the south end of Redlands Wednesday night, and had forced evacuations.

The blaze, dubbed Bruder Fire, was first reported around 8:52 p.m. and was burning in the 13200 block of Bruder Lane, in an area difficult to access, said Capt. Bennett Malloy of Cal Fire San Bernardino.

The blaze was 0% contained as of 11:50 p.m.

An unknown number of structures were being threatened, according to Malloy.

Wind was not a factor in spreading the flames as of 10:45 p.m.

Evacuations were ordered for homes south of E. Sunset Drives and north of Live Oak Canyon Road from the I-10 Freeway to San Timoteo Canyon Road, according to Cal Fire’s San Bernardino Unit. There were also evacuations orders in the area of Puesta Del Sol, they said.

No further details were available Wednesday night.
