Update 1, Monday December 11 1:44 p.m.

Due to low humidity, gusty winds and heavy resource commitments in Southern California, the “Spark of Love ” toy drive and Firefighters bonfire has been postponed until Monday, December 18. San Bernardino County fire will evaluate the weather, fuel conditions, and community safety to determine the feasibility moving forward with the event at that time.

Original Story

Lake Arrowhead, CA – The Lake Arrowhead Firefighters bonfire has been rescheduled by the Fire Marshal, due to the windy conditions.

Santa Claus will be looking for you when he arrives from the North Pole on a fire engine. He’ll spend time with children as Christmas music fills the chilly night air around the annual Firefighters Bonfire in the parking lot of Lake Arrowhead Village, on Monday December 11.





Free hot dogs and hot cocoa will be served starting at 5:00 p.m. by members of San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters Local 935.


Firefighters will be on hand to, not only cook the hot dogs, but to accept donations for the anual Spark of Love Toy Drive.

The Spark of  Love Toy Drive collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for under-served children and teens in the mountain communities.

Cash donations will also be accepted.

There will be plenty of hot dogs, coffee and hot chocolate….so bundle up and come on out! (File Photo by Kelly Pajak/Mountain Magick Photography)
