Highland home burns down amid standoff between armed person and officers

UPLAND, Calif. (KABC) — A home in Upland was engulfed in flames Monday night during an hours-long standoff between an armed person and sheriff’s deputies.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies went to the home in the 1500 block of Fairwood Way to serve a search warrant around 3:15 p.m. A person inside the home refused to cooperate and allegedly shot at the officers, but then remained barricaded inside. No injuries were reported at this time.

Several hours after the standoff, a fire broke out in the home. It is unclear how the fire started and whether the barricaded person was able to escape.
