Firefighters quickly extinguish vegetation fire in southern Fontana on May 13 | News

Firefighters quickly extinguished a small vegetation fire that broke out in the southern Fontana area on May 13, according to the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

At 8:16 p.m., San Bernardino and CALFIRE / Riverside County fire crews were dispatched to a reported vegetation fire on Sierra Avenue, south of Jurupa Avenue, near the Riverside / San Bernardino county line. Due to the fire reported in both counties, both agencies sent a full response.

Firefighters from both agencies arrived quickly to find 2-3 acres burned of light fuel, running uphill at an average rate of spread. Firefighters immediately deployed the bowel lines and were successful in stopping the spread rate to 5.4 acres.

“The cooperative response was vital in the rapid ceasefire,” said Mike McClintock, public information officer for the San Bernardino County Fire Department. No house was immediately threatened due to swift action and cooperative response.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
