Lake Fire San Bernardino National Forest – Round 2

All of these images of the Lake Fire where shot late Thursday night into Friday afternoon. Most of the shots are from the area of Burns Canyon Road and Pioneertown. The helicopter photos are from the base off of Highway 38. Per Cal Fire the Lake Fire has burned over 25,000 acres and is 19% contained. There are 7,390 structures threatened but none have been destroyed so far. I am very thankful for Cal Fire and other supporting agencies as they battle this beast.

The Lake Fire San Bernardino National Forest

1,224 Southern California fire personnel are battling the 11,000 acre Lake Fire that’s been ravaging the San Bernardino mountains near Big Bear. Overnight the fire pushed further east into the Heart Bar area and Coon Creek area and moved further south into the San Gorgonio Wilderness area. The Lake Fire started about 4 p.m. Wednesday south of Jenks Lake West in the Barton Flats area. Images were shot on Thursday.

it’s sad that such a disaster can make such Beautiful pictures…you are an amazing photographer.

Emily Harris - June 20, 2015 - 12:03 pm

Praying for a miracle.

Tracey Heyman - June 20, 2015 - 12:30 pm

Good pictures but sorry, I can’t say I “enjoy” considering I’ve had to leave my home due to the smoke.

Vasile Carcanakis - June 20, 2015 - 1:49 pm

We will do the best to save the mountain .

Michele Wimmer - June 20, 2015 - 3:05 pm

Enjoy? for those of us that live here… there is nothing to “enjoy” about these pictures. The pictures are a sad testimony to the destruction of a beautiful area. Found that comment a bit tasteless.

Gianni Giarelli - June 20, 2015 - 3:10 pm

The most pristine high country wilderness in SoCal mountains.

Diana Eichenlaub - June 20, 2015 - 3:48 pm

ENJOY REALLY? Do you think there could have been a better choice of words! People are risking their lives

Darla G. Peck Cornelison - June 20, 2015 - 4:09 pm

While these shots are done tastefully, I feel the irony in them. We lost our place in the Grass Valley Fire in 2007. We have moved on from 2007 but any report of a fire breaks my heart for all involved.

Victoria Mixon - June 20, 2015 - 4:27 pm

I’m relieved to see the number of big trees that appear to have survived. Forest fires are devastating to wildlife and our beloved human retreats. We had 164 of them all at once in Mendocino County seven years ago, and there is still cleared ground where they swept the nearby redwood forests. But fires are nature’s way of clearing dry brush so that animals can move freely and big flora, like trees, are safer in the future. Believe me, this wilderness has burned before–even if only before human occupation. Every one of our wildernesses has burned innumerable times. That’s why we have old-growth redwoods and sequoias. A lot of this danger could be reduced by federal and CA Parks management of underbrush on public lands, which brush has been left to build up for decades as simply tinder waiting for a match. If you’re upset about this fire, go to your representatives and agree to raise your taxes to allocate the money and resources so the Parks can clear that brush without this type of devastation. Don’t wait! It’s only June. We need those forests cleared NOW.

Claire Von Wimmer - June 20, 2015 - 5:55 pm

These pictures are a great quality, but to say enjoy? In bad taste. The loss of this forest for us who live or grew up on this mtn range, this isn’t something we “enjoy” it’s terrifying and unsettling and horrific

Erika Andrade - June 20, 2015 - 6:17 pm

Enjoy? Really. What’s there to enjoy? Imbecile.

Cameron Morissette - June 20, 2015 - 7:44 pm

Thank you for posting, I enjoyed viewing these.

Cheryl Bottone - June 20, 2015 - 8:01 pm

Thank you for working so hard!!! Please stay safe as possible!!!

Renee McDonald - June 20, 2015 - 9:39 pm

Terrible!!!

Dee Butcher - June 20, 2015 - 9:41 pm

These pictures are good but extremely sad

Lori Eastwood - June 20, 2015 - 9:52 pm

Good photography wonder how they get so close, must have been a first responder.

Samantha Coffee - June 21, 2015 - 12:08 am

As horribly devastating this is to those who reside up there…. This is also a part of nature. Many plants & trees rely on fires to give new life to their sapplings & buds. The deadfall also was in great numbers up there. I am sure the photographer meant utmost respect. .

Nancy Reynolds - June 21, 2015 - 5:25 am

Wow!!!!

Judy Wofford McPhail - June 21, 2015 - 6:35 am

We just got home from Orange County and I could smell the smoke here in Hemet. Hope the fire fighters can get it under control real soon. Good bless all those fire fighters.

Candy Elder Moulton - June 21, 2015 - 5:28 pm

Nicely done. I appreciate the photos & our heros on the fire lines, so putting pictures to what we all imagine is great. I think everyone knows that & “enjoys” your skills, just like hitting the “like” button doesn’t mean they “like” this fire! I’ll use my time to honor & pray for those actually doing something..

Robert Fair Sr - June 21, 2015 - 9:17 pm

Enjoy should ne takewith a grain pf

Marti Goss - June 22, 2015 - 3:43 pm

Bless all the fire fighters.. please be safe

Monica Jones Blanchard - June 24, 2015 - 2:04 pm

God bless all of u out there there need of fireman.. Prayers go out to those fireman and home owners.

Joanne Alexis Cowie - June 25, 2015 - 9:03 pm

I pray that God keeps all of you safe, residents and animals too. I live in Sugarloaf near Bear City, so sad to see these pictures, it is so very sad to see what these crews are having to challenge. You are all very special people to put your lives on the line for all of us. Thank you and ever so great full. Thank You for the pictures and sharing them with us. God Bless Joanne
