A 350-acre wildfire threatens some buildings in Fontana near Jurupa Hills Regional Park.

According to the San Bernardino County Fire Department, the blaze, dubbed the Sierra Fire, was first reported around 3:30 p.m. near Sierra Avenue south of the I-10 Freeway.

The area quickly grew from just one acre to 40 acres at 4:00 p.m. and jumped again to 350 acres by 6:30 p.m., prompting a second fire alarm, which included the Riverside County Fire Department.

According to the San Bernardino Fire Department, the flames have been contained to at least 15 percent.

The fire is spreading in a southeasterly direction, “with moderate lateral extension to the east,” firefighters said.

In case the fire moves towards them, emergency services have barricaded themselves in front of the houses in the area.

As a result of the gunfire, Fontana Police have closed Sierra Avenue at Jurupa Avenue to the public.

Emergency services believe buildings are at risk from the spreading flames, but no evacuation orders have been issued yet.
