HESPERIA, Calif: (VVNG.com)- On the morning of Tuesday, August 9th the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors declared a local state of emergency in response to the Pilot Fire.

“The purpose of this is to make County Government eligible for state and perhaps eventually federal reimbursement for any of the costs of fighting the fire,” stated County spokesman David Wert.

“It might also make those who suffered a loss from the fire eligible for state and perhaps eventually federal assistance.”
