"Firefighters from Multiple agencies snuff another Fire near Bluff Lake in Big Bear"

The Champion Fire was reported at approx 4:27pm. Ben Brissey from BensWeather.com was one of the first to report this fire to 911 after seeing smoke from the north shore of Big Bear Lake. Forest Service, County Fire, Big Bear Fire, and CalFire units were dispatched to this fire and they made access to the fire at around 5:00PM. Air Attack 12 along with 3 helicopters were also used to fight this fire with some of them dipping out of Big Bear Lake. Fixed wing air tankers were immediately put on hold at the time of dispatch and were not utilized on this fire. At 5:56PM "Champion" Incident Command reported they had a containment line around the fire. Although the smoke is nearly gone, crews will continue mop up of the fire into the evening. The Champion fire burnt approx 1/4 of an acre and was located very near the "Bluff" fire which occurred 2 weeks ago today. That fire also burnt around 1/4 of an acre. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the USFS.

THANK YOU FIREFIGHTERS!

Thank goodness Benny and others saw this smoke so early and reported it!!!! Only 1/4 acre burned.... I didn't even know about the other fire 2 weeks ago. I'm thinking there are homeless back in this area? I sure hope this area is monitored much more than it has been.....

By the by. Just received our Property Tax Bill. Don’t mind just make it so we can use the services.

Open letter to BBCSD
Hoping that Big Bear City will enact a new area where those of us who can’t use the new trash bins because of being part-timers and not wanting to leave it out from Sunday to Tuesday for animals to tip can use when we leave to drop off our trash in a safe place. Especially since we are paying for it on our taxes and only use it occasionally Please just a thought. Transfer station put some dumpsters out front for easier drop off or the main office could have some dumpsters for us to use Thanks

Felt bad for the driver. Gotta be the worst! He was doing his best but obviously had never been up 18 and had NO idea how sharp that upper hairpin really is.

Anyone hear anything about the semi stuck on the hairpins this morning? I was a few cars back. Watched the non-thinking person in front of me try to pass a car so she could squeeze through. (no chance!) That car blocked her or it could have been worse!
