Fire crews were dispatched up Devil’s Slide Trail at about 2:50 p.m. Monday to extinguish a small vegetation fire. “The fire was located north of Devil’s Slide Trail in Humber Park,” said Gerrelaine Alcordo, assistant public affairs officer for the San Bernardino National Forest.

A Cal Fire helicopter used Lake Fulmor as a water resource to help extinguish the blaze.

According to SBNF Public Affairs Officer John Miller, the fire was a 100-foot-by-20-foot “spot in rocky terrain with low growth potential.” He added that the cause is under investigation.

The fire was contained at 5:50 p.m., Alcordo said.

Along with U.S. Forest Service personnel, Cal Fire Engine 23 (Pine Cove) and Idyllwild Fire Department also were dispatched.
