The two fires burning in San Bernardino County grew slightly over night, but are keeping firefighters on edge. "The Oak Glen fire has now consumed 1,012 acres and is currently 40 percent contained and the Yucaipa fire [named the Pendleton Fire] measures 640 acres and is 45 percent contained," reported the Press-Enterprise around 9:15 a.m. Thousands of homes, mostly in Oak Glen, are threatened and one has been damaged. Officials are hoping to let Yucaipa residents back home today, but no word on affected Oak Glen dwellers. Preliminary causes have not found, but there are four people of interest sought in regards to the Pendleton Fire.
