MOUNTAINS - A second fire ignited near the roughly 15-acre fire burning in the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.
The second fire was reported by aircraft around 1 p.m. just south of the original fire near Highway 39 ad East Fork Road. Firefighters and deputies have evacuated campers at Coldbrook Campground, a nearby hiking trail and the West Fork area.
The second fire has been contained to two acres and flames have been knocked down, according to Fire Chief Robert of the Angeles National Forest.
Firefighters believe the second fire to be suspicious in nature. Two men in a grey Hummer H3 were seen leaving the area southbound as the second fire ignited.
Deputies from San Dimas Station and surrounding stations are assisting with evacuations.
