(Best Syndication) There is good news and bad news on the fire situation here in San Bernardino County.

We spoke to Jeff Grove of the U.S. Forest Service at around 3:30 PM Tuesday, and he told us that the Cajon Wildland Fire is 100 percent contained and is in mop-up stages. There were no reports of structures lost, and the fire was contained to grass and brush.

But the “Slide Wildfire” near Running Springs (See Map Below) is consuming timber and homes. Grove told me that there have been 100 structures lost, and most of them were lost last night. This fire started north of HWY 18 but has jumped the mountain highway west of Running Springs.
