Channel 5 just announced the sad death of our firefighter that had disappeared last night while battling the beast fir us. A few hours later he or she was found dead. Very upsetting!! They have not announced the name yet. RIP hero!!

The main gist from that update:

“Fire burned with increased intensity along Hwy 38 near the Pinezanita area. Spotting occurred within the indirect fire line and did not cross Hwy 38. The spots fires were quickly extinguished by the ground resources working in the area. Structure protection continues from Pinezanita to Jenks Lake by increasing defensible space, hose line placement and fire line construction. The road has been widened to create a better fire break and assist fire resources with containing the fire south of Hwy 38.

The fire progressed past Forsee Creek and continues to burn northeast towards San Bernardino Peak as the upcanyon winds align with topography.

There are no active spot fires that have crossed Hwy 38.”

“There is NO evacuation directive for Big Bear residents AT THIS TIME.”

, might as well be handing out road flares at the bottom of the hill. As for the 'Safe and Sane' 'Warning', it is considered to be 'Safe' when a 'Sane' person follows the use specifications to the 'T'. Anything other than that is 'voiding' the warnings so no responsibiity. Sort of like paint that is guaranteed until you actually paint it on an outside wall up here.

thx SilentSky.

in regards to maps, I suppose spots are not shown, but maybe established spots dictate the placement of the fire line. the main thing: the line is still south of the 38. (Awesome!)

Has anyone heard what forest this individual was from?

I'm not actually defending anyone. I'm just appalled that these things are allowed to be marketed and sold as a bit of "harmless fun". My true ire is for the fireworks stands at 40th and Waterman because technically they're legal in the city of SB but obviously aimed at travelers about to head up the mountain.

McToddy, InciWeb posted this fire perimeter map at about 7:13 am that shows a detail map of the Pinezanita and Hwy 38 area (NOTE: Maps represent approximate information.):

In addition to reckless endangerment laws, there is such a thing as reckless burning. Reckless burning is when someone recklessly starts a fire or causes an explosion which endangers human life.

God bless our firefighter heroes. Each of them risk EVERYTHING for us every day. May the fallen firefighter Rest In Peace and his family and friends be comforted in his bravery.
