Fire in San Bernardino leads to evacuations

Posted: Updated:

A fire in San Bernardino, California leads to evacuations and critical injuries. The blaze began this afternoon behind a fast-food restaurant and has since burned some 100-acres. At least two people suffered critical burns and were taken to a local trauma center.

About 200 firefighters are working to contain the fire, but none of them have received injuries.

Evacuations were put in place for nearby areas, but by early evening most residents were permitted to return home.

Several garages have been damaged, but authorities report that hundreds of homes and businesses have been saved.

Strong Santa Ana winds are expected for two more days, which is concerning to fire officials.
