Calls have been made to 911 dispatchers from people saying they had no way to evacuate their family because they had no running vehicle, others were forced to leave pets behind as the fire raced toward their home. Several animals died as a result of the fire, officials said.
Fire Chief Mark Hartwig said that over 96 homes and over 213 outbuildings have been burnt in the fire. This comes as the San Bernardino County Fire Department’s Damage Assessment Team continues searching the rubble with the help of the Search Dog team in the Swarthout Canyon. Buildings also have been damaged, although the number is unclear, with officials only saying dozens as of late Friday morning.
