SAN BERNARDINO NATIONAL FOREST, California – The Vista Fire, first spotted on Sunday, July 7, has expanded to 2700 acres with 0% containment as of 9am local time on Thursday, July 11. 479 personnel are on the scene, with California Incident Management Team 15 in control.

The Vista Fire was active on the southeast and northwest flank throughout last night, though firefighters were able to hold the line along 3No6 road and Stockton Flats on the north end of the wildfire. While containment is still at 0%, crews are working hard to establish control and contingency lines.

416 structures are currently threatened by the fire, though it’s unclear what or where exactly those are. The Mt. Baldy Resort remains under evacuation order, but there are no updates on the buildings and structures within the resort.
