Brush fire destroys multiple homes in San Bernardino

- A brush fire Saturday in San Bernardino destroyed multiple homes and left three firefighters injured.

Crews responded at about 1 p.m. for reports of a vegetation fire on Kendall Drive near Little Mountain.

Officials say four homes were a complete loss in the fire, but several other structures in the area were saved due to quick action by the initial responders.

Three San Bernardino County firefighters sustained smoke and heat related injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation. Officials said a nearby resident also suffered smoke inhalation.

The cause is currently under investigation.

"County Fire would like to remind homeowners that now is the time to clear your property of dead and downed vegetation," officials said in a press release. "Create a defensible space that will allow your firefighters to protect your home in the event of a wildfire."
