Bear, Cub Die in Fire They Started in House
From Times Staff and Wire Reports

August 6 2002

A mother bear and cub foraging for food entered a home in this San Bernardino National Forest mountain community and died in the house fire they started.

The 300-pound black bear and her cub entered the house on Maple Drive through an open front window while the family was out grocery shopping Sunday afternoon, said San Bernardino County Fire Department spokeswoman Tracey Martinez.

The bears knocked down a living room lamp, sparking the fire. They continued to the kitchen in search of food, Martinez said.

The bears were trapped inside the burning home and died. Firefighters discovered the carcasses when they doused the flames, Martinez said.

"It's my understanding that the bears have been kind of terrorizing the neighborhood and broke into several other houses," she said.
