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. 


Fire 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. 

Bear 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.
