Firefighters responded to a reported wildland fire in the City of San Bernardino at the north end of Sepulveda street shortly after five p.m. on November 6, 2010. Fire grew to 40 acres in grass and chaparral burning uphill towards state highway 18 in the San Bernardino National Forest. Firefighters made excellent progress stopping the spread of the fire from crossing the highway. Current operations are focusing on cooling hot spots and construction of a fire control line around the perimeter of the fire. State Highway 18 was closed to all traffic between lower and upper Waterman Canyon and reopened at approx. 10:20pm. Old Waterman Canyon Road served as the alternate route during the closure, motorists experienced a slight delay. There are no immediate threats to the local community and no residents were, or are evacuated. The fire is under unified command with the City of San Bernardino and the US Forest Service.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
