Fires spark as thunderstorms move through San Bernardino mountains

Two trees caught fire Sunday as thunderstorms made their way through the San Bernardino County Mountains.

Ground crews and aircraft were called to work on two confirmed single tree fires, San Bernardino National Forest officials tweeted.

Aircraft were needed as there are minimal ground fire crews in the Running Springs communities, the tweet read.

The fires come as a wave of monsoonal moisture was passing over the region, bringing rain, thunder and lightning.

At one point, a flash flood warning was issued for the Running Springs area.

Forest officials tweeted an image showing two areas of white smoke rising from a tree-lined hillside.

Cal Fire crews from San Bernardino were also assisting with the incident.
