Morongo Indian Reservation, June 11, 2013 – As the Hathaway Fire continues to burn, southwest winds will carry drift smoke into the Big Bear Valley again today. The Hathaway Fire began last Sunday on the Morongo Indian Reservation and continues to burn in rugged terrain making it difficult for firefighters. The fire has grown to 1,650 acres since it began. Hand crews have encircled about 25% of the fire and high winds today will make the battle more difficult for fire personnel. As smoke is visible, Valley residents should know that this fire poses no threat to Big Bear.
