LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Panorama Fire Map 2012 today reveals the threat to San Bernardino, California terrain. Officials in updating the Panorama Fire Map tell news today that the fire is currently at thirty percent containment. While voluntary evacuations were issued for some residents on Monday, by Tuesday July 10, 2012 those evacuations had been lifted.
The Panorama Fire, which erupted yesterday shortly before 2 PM, has spread currently to seventy-five acres. The fire which is nestled north of State Highway 18 in Waterman Canyon is still burning strong this morning. After residents in Waterman Canyon were sent on voluntary evacuations Monday, officials told news that those orders were cancelled.
A quick dispatch of nearly three hundred firefighters helped block this fire’s further advance. The blaze is being fueled by dry chaparral. Officials tell news that Highway 18 is “closed from Lower to Upper Old Waterman Canyon Road.” But currently “Old Waterman Canyon Road has been re-opened”.
“Firefighters did an excellent job today, considering the high temperatures and low humidity in Southern California today,” District Ranger Gabe Garcia said in a news statement. “We want to remind the public to be extra cautious, and report any suspicious activity.” The fire is currently burning close to the location of the 2003 Old Fire.
