Firefighters contain Yucca Valley brushfire that threatened homes
Firefighters contained a brushfire in San Bernardino early Thursday after the blaze scorched about 21 acres, fire officials said.
The fire briefly threatened five homes but there were no evacuations or injuries. The blaze started just after 5 p.m. Wednesday along Bannock Trail in Yucca Valley. About 100 firefighters battled the flames and contained the fire by 6 a.m. Thursday morning, said San Bernardino County fire spokeswoman Tracey Martinez.
With high winds expected, Martinez said firefighters will stay on scene all day. "We want to make sure there are no flare-ups," she said.
The cause of the fire has not been determined, she said.
