The top of the Cajon Pass taking some quick shots of a wildfire from the Mojave Freeway before the race to the bottom.
I took the first exit off the freeway at the bottom of the Cajon Pass to position myself on old Route 66 looking up at the charred hillside.
A special firefighting helicopter leaves to refill with water at nearby Glen Helen Park after dropping its load deep within the canyon.
The brave firefighters start a strenuous climb up a hill in single file to mount an assault from the ground.
The police chased me off so I drove into the town of Devore and watched the plumes from the other side of the Cajon Pass.
The orange color is caused by the colored fire retardant these planes were dropping which marks where the retardant has been dropped.
Residents on the hillside prepare for the worst. Luckily, this ranch was spared and today the fire is totally contained. Over 350 acres were burned and one mobile home was burnt to the ground. No lives were lost and no injuries to residents or their pets were reported. A great big thanks to the brave and experienced firefighters of San Bernardino County.
