Due to increased fire danger, the Rancho Cucamonga Fire Protection District and the San Bernardino County Fire Department have ordered a joint closure of the North Etiwanda Preserve.

The closure will be in effect until 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27. A violation of the closure order is punishable by a fine of $1,000.

The closure is necessary to provide for public safety and prevent the ignition of a wildfire that can damage or destroy the natural resources of the region and the historically significant areas within the North Etiwanda Preserve., authorities said.

“The North Etiwanda Preserve is a local treasure and a historically important place within our community,” said Rancho Cucamonga Fire Marshal Rob Ball.
