VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): On Saturday, March 21st just after 5:00 P.M., the San Bernardino County Fire department was dispatched to a fast-moving brush fire in the desert area just southeast of Polaris Lane and Dos Palmas Road.
Per scanner traffic, the fire was on a power line close behind homes but according to firefighters was blowing northeast away from structures.
Firefighters on scene reported the wind driven fire to be approximately ¼ acre in size and spreading rapidly, causing them to call for an additional fire engine. Upon arrival, firefighters were hindered due to the difficult access to the area. Within approximately 15 minutes the fire was contained with no damage to structures reported.
County Fire responded with a total of 30 personnel including 4 engine companies, 1 crew foreman with 14 inmates, 1 battalion chief and a fire investigator.
Ground crews remained on scene “mopping up” for 1-2 hours after the fire was declared contained.
The Cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Office of the Fire Marshal. There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters and there was no damage to any structures.
