San Bernardino National Forest officials announced  the VALLEY FIRE was declared 100 percent contained at 4:00 P.M. Monday, October 22, 2018. 

The decision was based on infrared flights, recent weather, especially the significant rainfall on October 13th, and no recent reports of smoke and flame activity. 


The Valley Fire, the cause which remains under investigation, began on July 6, 2018 at approximately 1:30 P.M. near the intersection of State Route-38 and Valley of the Falls Drive, outside the community of Forest Falls.

The wildfire burned 1,350 acres in the San Bernardino National Forest and up steep cliffs into the San Gorgonio Wilderness of Sand to Snow National Monument. That steep terrain made the fire area inaccessible to Fire-fighting personnel, prolonging a possible full containment.
