Upon arrival to work early Thursday morning, a
Bear Creek Resort employee realized that smoke was coming from a double cabin
and called 9-1-1. She reported the
cabin-fire that was quickly growing larger.
The structure fire was reported at the Bear Creek Resort located in Big
Bear Lake at 40210 Big Bear Boulevard at approximately 8:29 A.M.
Upon arrival, Big Bear Fire Fighters, the crews
observed smoke coming from the attic of a single-story cabin. The Fire Crews
were able to contain the fire, primarily to the attic area of the structure of
origin preventing the spread to adjacent cabins. The resort owner reported that
no one was occupying the cabin at the time of the fire. Big Bear Fire
Department units commenced fire suppression activity with complete knock-down
obtained within approximately 20-30 minutes.
Battalion Chief Ryan Harold was on-scene and in command of the response by Big
Bear Fire personnel. CAL FIRE and the Big Bear Sheriff Officers were on-scene
to assist if necessary. The fire required all units from Big Bear Fire
Department to respond, causing a level zero draw-down.
Creek Resort owner surmised the damage to the roof and interior can be quite
extensive. Fortunately, the fire did not
spread to any near-by buildings.
