It’s the time of year when conditions in California are right for wildfires to burn. Unfortunately, that’s what’s happening in San Bernardino as what is being called the Blue Cut fire continues to rage out of control. At this point, the fire is burning across an estimated 30,000 acres and it appears to be growing. 82,000 people living in 35,000 homes in the area have already been evacuated and more evacuation orders could be on the way as buildings are threatened. The wildfire lawyers at The Gomez Law Firm would like to pass along as much information as possible regarding this situation in hopes that everyone heeds warnings and takes proper steps towards remaining safe and out of the reach of these flames.
The Blue Cut fire is named after the Blue Cut hiking trail that sits nearby. The fire began on Tuesday morning in the Cajon Pass near Kenwood Avenue, just west of Interstate 15. The cause of the fire is currently unknown. Firefighters have stated that this is the most powerful fire they have seen in some time and it is zero percent contained as of Wednesday morning. At 30,000 acres in size, the fire has burned 47 square miles of land. According to InciWeb, a governmental informational Web site, the following areas have already been evacuated:
Unfortunately, weather conditions are expected to remain such that a “Red Flag” warning is in place until 9:00 p.m. on Thursday. That means that weather conditions are amenable to the spread of wildfires.
