A drought-driven wildfire burning in an area of the San Bernardino National Forest that hasn’t burned in more than 100 years grew overnight to 11,000 acres.

The Lake fire, which is 10% contained, continues to rage in Barton Flats as it consumes thousands of drought-stricken trees and burns east toward forestland, said Lyn Sieliet, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Forest Service. There are no reports of fire in the area in 104 years of record-keeping, she said.


California is a tinderbox right now.
