Brush fire burns dozens of acres at San Bernardino County line

Dozens of firefighters from Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties were battling a brush fire in a mostly remote area in the Pinyon HIlls.

The fire, which was first reported about 11:45 a.m. near Highway 138 at the Los Angeles-San Bernardino county line, has burned 25 to 35 acres, said Bill Peters, a spokesman for Cal Fire in San Bernardino County. Four air tankers and four helicopters were assisting in the battle.

Although there are some media reports of evacuations, Peters said he was not aware of any fire department issuing such orders.

“Nobody is aware of any evacuations,” he said. “I don’t know where that information is coming from.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Peters said. Wind is not a major factor at this time, he said.
