Fire ignites alongside 210 Freeway in Fontana, plane makes emergency landing with no injuries in Upland

Crews tackled a fire in Fontana on the 210 Freeway on Thursday and also dealt with a small plane that made an emergency landing nearby in Upland.
Eric Sherwin, spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department, said the fire started near the intersection of the 210 and 15 freeways at roughly 3 p.m. The fire department had 75 people and 14 engines on-scene fighting the fire.
By 4:30 p.m. the forward rate of spread of the fire had been halted with the fire at 5.5 acres and crews were in mop-up mode, the Fire Department said.
Sherwin said a single-engine, fixed-wing airplane also made an emergency landing on the 210 Freeway, just west of Mountain Avenue in Upland, at around 3:45 p.m.
The cause of the emergency landing hasn’t been determined, but Sherwin said the plane was still on the freeway and the furthest right lane was closed. No one on the plane was hurt.
