Various incident logs and reports between June 13 and 18 appeared to generate concern, but the most “alarming” incidents turned out to be minor – except for the people who were involved.

Two reports, for example, were labeled as a “drowning” and a “possible drowning.” The June 16 incident on Lake Arrowhead at 7 p.m. was actually an overturned kayak. Its occupants suffered mild hypothermia, according to Eric Sherwin, public information officer (PIO) for the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

Likewise, a “possible drowning” at the Lake Silverwood Marina, also on June 16, was a case of “mistaken identity” in which no assistance was needed. No explanation was offered for the “mistaken identity.”

The worst situation apparently was a residential fire in the 23400 block of Crestline Road in Crestline. It took about 40 minutes to knock down the fire, Sherwin reported, but no one was injured.

Another report made it appear that a wildfire was burning in the forest, but the alert was in connection with the residential fire on Crestline Road. Zachary Behrens, PIO for the San Bernardino National Forest, said that the agency was notified about the residential fire in case it spread to Forest Service land nearby.

Another Crestline fire in the 23500 block of Knapps Cutoff was a stove fire that had been put out by the time firefighters arrived.

Among other non-events was a report of hazardous material (haz mat) in the 23300 block of Cloudview Road in Crestline. County fire units responded, but Sherwin said they were unable to locate any haz mat situation.
