(Updated 6:16 p.m., Friday, August 10.)

Friday afternoon, firefighters responded to two brush fires near Hesperia Airport.

"The fire is pretty much out at this time," San Bernardino County Fire Department Deputy Fire Marshal Michael Horton said shortly before 5 p.m.

The Santa Fe Fire was first reported around 2 p.m.

The wind-driven fire was, in fact, two separate sites: One in large field south of homes at the corner of Ranchero Road and Santa Fe Avenue, and a nearby fire, at Rodeo Street and Santa Fe Avenue.

Together, both fires consumed approximately 35 acres, including a car, work shed and backyard trampoline near Rodeo Street.

No injuries were reported and no other structures threatened, Horton said.

At the Santa Fe Fire's peak, up to 50 units from the San Bernardino County Fire Department, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire), the U.S. Forestry Service, Victorville Fire Department and San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department were on scene, battling the blazes and directing traffic away from the sites.

"They're doing mop-up operations," Horton said. "They do have the fire fully contained."

The airport fire brought back uncomfortable memories for Mayor Rita Vogler, who was on scene at the county fire department command post at Ranchero and Santa Fe.

A 1979 fire had started in the same area, she said.

"It was terrible, terrible," Vogler said. "We lost many homes."

Among the homes threatened by the fire was hers, on Danbury Avenue.

"There were people in my back yard that I'll never see again that saved that house," she said.

The Hesperia Recreation and Park District was prepared to take in evacuees at the Percy Bakker Center at Main Street and E Avenue, but mandatory evacuations were never called for.

The fire was the second major one of the year. In March, the 4,000-acre Las Flores fire forced residents south of Ranchero Road out of their homes for several hours.
