ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez rushed over to the vegetation fire and began reporting on the vegetation fire on Facebook Live.

The vegetation fire is burning in an area with tall vegetation and brush just north of Ross Parkway, and burning away from homes and from a school for the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe.

San Bernardino County Fire Department, Mohave Valley Fire Department, Fort Mojave Mesa Fire Department, Bullhead City Fire Department, Yucca Fire Department, and Desert Hills Fire Department as well as Baker Emergency Medical Service are on scene.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department as well as Fort Mojave Indian Tribal Police Department are also on scene making sure the public is safe.


At this moment, no reports on anybody injured related to the vegetation fire and no structures are being threaten by the vegetation fire.

The vegetation fire has burned at least 4 acres and firefighters have kept the vegetation fire from growing any larger and reaching more tall vegetation and brush.

Firefighters are hoping to have full containment on the vegetation fire by later tonight.

A water dropping helicopter was dispatched to the vegetation fire, but after a fly around, has left the vegetation fire scene.

The cause of the vegetation fire is under investigation and unclear if this was a control burn.
