Multiple San Bernardino County Sheriff’s department units as well as several San Bernardino County firefighters responded to the scene of the large blaze with heavy black smoke that can be easily seen from over a half mile away.

According to the San Bernardino County Fire Department Spokeswoman, Tracey Martinez, a small dilapidated outbuilding was also burned to the ground.
The debris pile consisted of trash, old appliances, tires and other waste that created an enormous heavy cloud of black smoke. The quick work of the firefighters had the blaze out before 4:00 a.m. without further exposure to nearby structures or vegetation.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
