HESPERIA-(VVNG.com):  The San Bernardino County Fire Department, California Highway Patrol and Cal Fire responded to a vehicle fire in the area of SR-138 and Hwy 173 at around 1:49 p.m. on Friday afternoon.

The vehicle, described as a green Chevy S-10 went over the side of the bridge construction area subsequently catching fire, which spread to a small area of vegetation.

San Bernardino County Fire Department Spokesman, Cpt.

The fire was knocked down around 10 minutes after firefighter arrival. The fire was contained to the vehicle and the 30’X30’ spot. No injuries were reported as a result of the collision.
