SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) –
A wind-powered breast sponge burned behind California State University, San Bernardino campus on Sunday night, but the authorities said it did not threaten campus.
The fire started just before 8 pm in the 5500 block of University Parkway. The authorities said the 3-tunnel blower seemed to be heading upwards and driven by dry brush and strong winds. In less than an hour it grew to about 30 hectares, the authorities said.
The fire in Badger Canyon, just behind an observatory. The campus community was not threatened, fire officers said, but set up structural protection out of an abundance of caution.
Volunteering evacuations were also issued for residents living near 59th Street and Carleton Street. But no structures were threatened and two crews and watercrackers were in the area.
“The key to getting this fire under control was quickly a massive resource response from both the Commonwealth and the United States Forestry Service. Alarm resources reinforced by other alarm resources, our handcuffs, our motor companies and bulldozers ̵

At 21.45, the authorities said that the advancement of the wind was stopped and they started firing the fan.
The fire was not caused.
