A fire burning in Redlands within San Bernardino County has scorched at least 5 acres, according to Carl Baker with Redlands Fire Department, who spoke to KNX1070. As of 2:45 p.m., no structures had burned, but some were threatened. Evacuations have been ordered along Sunset, west of Helen in addition to homes onEdgemont and Fairmont. More evacuations had been ordered, but Baker was unaware of specifics at the time of the interview. "If this grows and continues, certainly we'll be setting up an evacuation center," he said. The blaze began around 1:45 p.m.
