Burning at 30 acres, a fire that started around 5 a.m. in the Bear Flat/Bighorn area of Mount Baldy already has a name: the "Big Horn Incident."

"There is no immanent threat to Mount Baldy Village," Dispatch Supervisor Tim Franke of the San Bernardino County Fire Department told KNBC. "It's above Mount Baldy Village. They have winds up there of 15 to 20 mph -- with 50 mph gusts." There is no word how the fire started yet and at the moment, no evacuations have been called for the Mt. Baldy Village.
