Firefighters respond to a report of fire this morning at 10:34 am, first reported at Arrowhead Lake Road and State Highway 173 southeast of Hesperia.

The US Forest Service Heaps Peak Helicopter was first on scene and determined the fire was located in the Deep Creek drainage and north of the dirt portion of State Highway 173 burning on a very steep rocky slope on the south side of the creek.

Firefighters from the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Cal Fire and San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the incident and battled the blaze, containing the fire just after 5pm. During the height of the firefight, over 100 firefighters were supported by two air tankers, three helicopters and one air attack plane.

Fire investigators hiked down the steep slope to determine that illegal fireworks started the fire. No suspects have been apprehended and the investigators are not releasing the type of fireworks used to start the fire.

Fire Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance. If anyone was in the area the morning of the fire and may have information as to the person(s) responsible for starting the fire, please call (909) 382-2854
