A wildfire scorched several acres of riverfront land on Parker Strip opposite Fox’s and Sundance resorts over the weekend. Buckskin Fire Department and San Bernardino Fire responded with both land-based fire engines and a fire boat. Buckskin was called just before 1 a.m. early on Sunday morning. Less than 10 acres of desert brush, mesquite and salt cedar trees were burned before the fire was extinguished. Fireworks are suspected to be the cause of the blaze, but not confirmed. Fireworks are illegal on both sides of the river.
