Fire Burns 12 Acres In Lytle Creek Canyon

Lytle Creek, CA, June 26, 2012, 8:00am – The Lytle Fire is now 100% contained. The fire was reported at 4:56 pm Sunday near Sheep Canyon Road, north of the community of Lytle Creek. Two hundred firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service, San Bernardino County Fire Department, CalFire and the Bureau of Land Management responded, taking immediate, aggressive and decisive actions to hold the fire to 12 acres. The fire burned in heavy chaparral in rocky, steep terrain and burned into a US Forest Service fuels reduction project, which greatly helped slow the spread of the fire. During the height of the firefight, five homes were temporarily evacuated in Happy Jack, a community in Lytle Creek canyon, and Lytle Creek Road was closed north of Sheep Canyon. U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement Investigators are working to determine the exact cause of the blaze.
