San Bernardino County Fires And Evacuations – Locations of Fire and Directions – Slide Green Valley Running Springs Blazes

Estimates of Fire Location

(Best Syndication) There is good news and bad news on the fire situation here in San Bernardino County. From the Best Syndication news room in Pinon Hills we see smoke covering the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Mountains (See Map Below). 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.

(Best Syndication) Yesterday I spoke to our local fire chief, Bob Kettleman, who told me that they may be called to help out the firefighters at the Lake Castaic fire. Since then it seems like the whole world caught on fire with blazes breaking out near Running Springs and in the Cajon Pass. Now there are more fires burning in Canyon Country and even more incidents in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties.

Today I spoke with Norma to the US Forest Service who said that (as of 7:15 pm) there was no information available on containment. She told me that the fire in the Cajon Pass was a San Bernardino County fire department operation. The fire in the Cajon Pass near Devore shut down the 15 Freeway for a “short time” today and consumed about 200 acres.

(Best Syndication) Representative for San Bernardino County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, Michael Orme, spoke at the Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) Meeting in Pinon Hills on October 4th 2007 (see video below). He handed out some press releases concerning the supervisor’s gang intervention program and the county’s crackdown on sex offender violators.

Orme handed out some brochures for resources and referrals. “Basically it is like a small phone book,” Orme said. “It gives you the phone numbers for different county agencies.” Then the representative went on to talk about the plans for a new playground at the Pinon Hills Park on Mountain Road, just north of Highway 138.

The county of San Bernardino has provided some funds for playground equipment. Orme presented a map / diagram of the proposed basketball court. “We have been working on it for a while and it is about ready to go out for bid,” Orme said.

West Cajon Valley Residents Expressed Concerns of Paint Ball Park – Spoke At Phelan MAC Meeting

West Cajon Valley Residents Expressed Concerns of Paint Ball Park – Spoke At Phelan MAC Meeting

Tom Mason

(Best Syndication) West Cajon and Phelan resident Tom Mason spoke at the Phelan Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) meeting on October 11th 2007 concerning paint-ball games being played on a property in his area (see video below). Local property owners are concerned about the noise and the danger to horses and children.

“I am here to try to enlist the Phelan MAC with issue of a land owner over there who has installed a professional paint-ball park,” Mason said.

The play has been going on for a year now, and the property owner has applied for a conditional use permit (CUP). “He has used the guise that it is for his children and friends”, Mason added. There are 8 to 20 cars per weekend, and Mason asked the MAC to assist him in getting this CUP squashed. “It is not conducive to the area, it is disruptive to the community, it’s a danger to the children walking and riding their horses, and it is a deadly sport.”
