San Bernardino Mountains
A wildfire that forced the evacuation of at least 1,100 homes grew to 800 acres on Wednesday, fanned by gusty Santa Ana winds that pushed it through foothills east of Los Angeles.
Fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner hid in a mountain condominium as a door-to-door manhunt took place outside and, after he finally made his break, apparently killed himself with a gunshot to the head amid a fiery battle with police.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff maintained Wednesday that his deputies did not intentionally burn down the mountain cabin where a wanted former LAPD police officer is thought to have died.
Christopher Dorner, the former police officer who was suspected of killing four people and was the subject of an intense statewide manhunt, has died after being barricaded in a cabin that was later engulfed in flames, CBS News has learned from law enforcement sources.
