Sterling Fire CA-BDF-008150, San Bernardino County / Del Rosa LRA/FRA

The fire, which spread north, has burned 118 acres and was 95% contained by Saturday morning, fire officials said. The dry, steep terrain has been a challenge for the 120 firefighters at the scene. A drone spotted in the area temporarily halted relief efforts earlier in the afternoon. A person thought to be the pilot of the drone was detained, but later released as it was a mistake.
