Radford Fire in Big Bear: All evacuation warnings lifted as crews make progress
BIG BEAR, Calif. - A brush fire erupted in the Big Bear area on Monday evening, prompting evacuations in the area that were lifted a week later, officials said.
As of Tuesday, San Bernardino National Forest officials said the fire burned 1,079 acres, and due to favorable weather conditions, containment reached 87%.
South Coast AQMD as well as the San Bernardino County Health Department issued a smoke advisory last week for those who live near the Radford Fire. Health officials said unhealthy air quality was possible in the area. Health officials also said pets should be indoors and in rooms with good ventilation. Conditions in the area have also since improved.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.
