Title: 2003 Old Fire

Date: Monday October 25, 2003

Location: San Bernardino Mountains-National Forest-San Bernardino County
Notes: On this morning in 2003 an arsonist started a fire in Waterman Canyon on the south face of the San Bernardino Mountains which driven by powerful Santa Ana Winds pushed it down into foothill communities like Highland and Del Rosa and the northern reaches of the City of San Bernardino.

Subsequently, this fire ran up into the San Bernardino Mountains and burned into communities like Crestline, Running Springs and Lake Arrowhead.
Ultimately, it consumed 91,281 acres, 993 homes, and killed 6 people
