  • The High Desert sky turned smoky Tuesday, sparking worries of a local fire and prompting numerous smoke checks by local fire departments and the U.S. Forest Service.
    The Forest Service reported the smoke in the area was drifting smoke from fires in Central California. The smoke was seen and smelled by residents throughout the desert and into Crestline and Wrightwood.
    Two large fires were burning in Central California. The French Fire began Monday and has burned 2,000 acres in the Sierra National Forest. The El Portal Fire began Saturday in Yosemite National Park and has burned more than 3,000 acres.
    San Bernardino County Fire officials reported two small brush fires in the Cajon Pass on Tuesday afternoon. California Highway Patrol incident logs reported one near southbound Interstate 15 at Cleghorn Road near the railroad tracks. No additional information was available on the second half-acre fire. And no further updates were available.
