North Lake Arrowhead homes burning
An unknown number of homes were burning in north Lake Arrowhead, and authorities had evacuated hundreds of people, San Bernardino county fire officials said. At least 1,500 homes were in the path of the fire. Voluntary evacuations were underway in the communities of Cedar Glen, Twin Peaks and Rim Forest.
The blaze, dubbed the Grass Valley fire, started about 5 a.m. today in the Grass Valley Creek area of the San Bernardino Mountains and was pushed west by high winds. It quickly grew, charring more than 400 acres by late morning.
